I also had the exact same problem with Ubuntu 15.10 and Windows 10 dual-
boot setup and now that I upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS it is still there
unfortunately. Mdadm or the intel tool in windows will always try to
resync the array on each reboot.

   mdadm resyncs imsm raid in "Normal" state

Status in mdadm package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Got an imsm raid1 which I don't boot from. Whenever bios reports the
  raid as being in "Normal" state, mdadm starts a resync of it after
  boot. If a resync already is underway (bios reports it as being in
  "Verify" state), it continues where it left off.

  This appears to be very similar to a problem in Fedora:
  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=753335 It's apparently
  fixed there for some time now. (The workaround mentioned in comment 41
  in that ticket doesn't work in Ubuntu, but I guess that's due to
  distro differences in initramfs and systemd.)

  Using mdadm 3.2.5-5ubuntu4 in a fresh Trusty install.
