Play-growl is perfectly fine and normal and doggie! It's how they tell each other they're just playing, the growl is a very different sound from their I-mean-it growl!
I wouldn't try to correct it. It's perfectly natural and he's just telling you he's playing. If anyone else worries over the same, tell them that, and point out all his other body language that says he's having fun, the wiggly body, the happy tail, the bounciness.
Edit: If he DOESN'T have playful body language when he's growling and it's NOT a play growl then he may be resource guarding, and then it'll have to be addressed that way. But if it's play let him play.
