electrical current detected in the stud

I have an electrical current detector that is beeping positive on the 2/6 studs that the 12/3 romex three way wire runs through. The door header that the wires run over at one point also continuously beep positive if I touch the southward current/voltage detector to it. If I turn off the breaker for the light switch, cutting power to the wire, the studs are no longer beeping positive for current. I pulled the wire myself. I also installed the breaker box in this new construction shop. 1/2 I have spray foam insulation in the wall some of which is on the wires. My studs are open so I can see most of the wire and don’t detect any breaks. Could this be a ground issue? or perhaps the spray foam is conducting the field?
