The fill nipple can rattle when there's no air in the tank. Now if it really is something inside the tank rattling, take the reg off right away and find out what it is before you use the tank again. It could be part of the reg, and that could cause an issue.

Agreed it's either the fill nipple rattling/moving with no air. Or the restrictor could have fallen out of the bottom of the regulator if there is something actually in the cylinder and it's not being confused with a fill nipple rattle.

Should be though I would contact the manufacturer about it just to check. It shouldn't just fall out though I have heard of it happening. Always best to double check with them and get advisement on the issue.
I would verify that's what it is first though and have the reg removed after all the air is drained. The restrictor is a little disc shaped piece that fits in the bottom of the reg and has a hole in it. It restricts the air flow into the reg from the tank per its name.
