Yes the sensor can move around for the shake reduction.

Does it happen when you turn the camera on?

It's the dust removal if it does.

That's normal. Rather than rattle isn't it more like there's box that moved around inside the body?

That is how mine sounds and that was the question that went through my mind with the OP's description.

it's almost like a slight clicking sound - like if there were a small paperclip kind moving around slightly inside with limited room to move.. ?

It could be your camera's orientation sensor, or it could be the sensor itself, since the shake reduction makes the sensor able to move around. Either way, it's entirely normal, and most DSLRs have one like it.

Just curious, why are you shaking your camera up and down?
