I think all kids especially boys would rather play than listen...lol
I would not worry about it unless it is causing problems in school.
If it is causing problems than maybe he has ADHD or a sensory processing issue..you could talk to his Dr about it.
You could also request for the school to evaluate him for SPED services,sometimes the school is able to tell you if there is a underlying cause for the behavior

Here is info on ADHD symptoms

When i was in elementary, I wouldn't sit still, was irritable in class and the teachers thought I had a learning disability. So I was tested then they skipped me 2 grades and all those issues stopped. I wasn't being challenged.

If he's intelligent he may not be being stretched enough in school and is getting bored.
