Only one faucet in the house did this on the hot water side. An adjacent (his/her lavs) faucet of identical model didn't do it. Would this be because the screen on the spigot was missing or something?

Not a problem, just a curiosity. Client asked.

Air is easily dissolved into pressurized water and into hot water. For one or more reasons, that faucet allows the rapid release of the air (like carbonation) when the pressure is released.

The most common reason would be the aerator is just a bit different than the other faucet - could be debris in the screen.
