MOST likely - friction in the freehub is using the mechanical advantage in the high gear ratio to push the chain after you stop pedalling.
take off cassette, if Shimano, feed 10?mm allen key into the freehub, remove and lube the freehub from the back side with thin lube. or just keep pedaling. some freehubs are freer than others!
