From my experience developers on average are a more 'noisy' breed than
authors.

I guess I've been lucky because at most sites I've been either in an
office shared with 1 or 2 other authors, or in a small open plan area
with 10 or so other people and lots of partitions to reduce noise from
colleagues working. Such are the joys of working in Europe.
