I wish there is a way :-)

I really don't know. 

The beep started months ago¹ in testing (in that time there was GNOME3 
but no "gnome-shell") and came back again but still have not found a way 
to silence it.

The only thing I've found is that when you stop gdm3 ("service gdm3 
stop") and go to a tty, a "shutdown -r now" won't produce any sound so 
I'm starting to think this loud beep is coming from the GNOME side...
