Correct but heat does transfer from an engine through an aluminum transmission and as I've said in a previous comment. . doing so prevented the noise in 9 degree weather, for me at least. Results may vary :)

Its not the heat transfer, its the fluid coupling that occurs between your input and output shaft that warms things up.
The engine blocks is luke warm to the touch at best at idle.

I had my car idle for over 10 minutes in negative/single digits, still made noise until 10 minutes of driving. But that's me.
