Friction sound from the wheel when in neutral

When I put the gear in neutral and roll the bike in and out the garage, I hear a very slight sound, from maybe the wheel, sounds like there is a friction between the wheel and the brake or something. Is that normal?

When you jack the front wheel in the air, and roll the rim, you will hear a little brake drag. That is normal. As long as the rim doesn't roll like a half a way and stop, you are in the catagory of normal.

isn't it because the brake pads are so close to the rotors that they touch often?

all other things being correct , the pads always maintain contact with the rotors .
