I hear a short whirring noise lasting about 1 second from the centre of the dashboard when I push the Power Off button to turn off the engine. What is this? Perhaps the steering lock engaging?

I have the same noise but mine comes from the engine compartment. It's a cooling fan and normal.
Mine doesn't sound like a cooling fan. K sounds like a motor operating for a second or so.

If it sounds like the buzz is this thread video (00:02) it is indeed a servo for the steering lock it will unlock with first cycle of ignition and after shut down/open door.
