sage: func(x) = x^2
sage: func_noise = func + normalvariate(0,1); func_noise
x |--> x^2 - 0.4436993396832335

How can one force the normalvariate to generate the number only on function evaluation?

From your description, it is not clear what do you want to do, but perhaps you should use Python function instead of symbolic function:

sage: func_noise = lambda x : x^2 + normalvariate(0,1)
sage: func_noise
<function <lambda> at 0xad99aa3c>
sage: func_noise(2)
3.1200300365934908
sage: func_noise(2)
2.6179089142775314
sage: func_noise(2)
3.9386360734990973
sage: func_noise(2)
