Brakes grinding when in reverse

I recently purchased a 2017 Jeep Renegade and on the carfax I can see that the rear brake pads only were replaced, doesn’t appear that the rotors were replaced. I called the dealership and they said a complete brake job was done. So now , first thing in the morning when my engine is still cold , my brakes are making a loud grinding noise when I am reversing. The dealership checked the brakes and couldn’t find an issue, they said this is normal. Has anyone else had a similar issue and how did it get resolved ?

"Grinding" and rust being scrapped off the discs are two very different sounds to me. If it is a true grinding sound then I'd take it anywhere other than a dealer. It seems to me that dealer techs can't find a problem if their scanner isn't reading an error code.
