I was listening to one of my hand helds on scan and keep picking up repeater tones I didn’t think frs radios could do that?

A tone is normally sub audible.   However what ever you are hearing, nothing is private not even repeaters.  An FRS radio is on simplex and you will be able to hear all repeater traffic.  Tones are just sub audible keys to unlock the repeater sqwelch.   You may be hearing a roger  beep or a curtesy tone or a Morse code.
