I've got several jigs with a rattle. Can't say for certain if they make a difference. I normally put a rattle jig on at the start of a session and on several occasions I had a hit on the first couple of casts, then nothing else for the whole session. This suggests to me, if a squid is about the rattle jig gets their attention.

I like the rattle jigs by Duel and Daiwa. I have one by Rui that I'm yet to try.

I've noticed that jigs are getting a little scarce. The place in Japan I normally buy jigs from has run out of most popular jigs.

So it looks like they might be able to at least, detect sound. They are known to be very curious, so I can not see why it would not help.

See the youtube link below from Yamashita regarding Squid jig rattle. The video is in Japanese but has subtitles. 

Most of my jigs are Yamashita's as I like the quality & the technology that goes into the build.

I mainly use the rattle jigs when I first get to a spot for a short period then switch over to a non rattle jig unless the water is dirty then I will use the rattle jig pretty much for the session, I'm also a fan of their warm jacket technology.
