I’m having the same problem.  I updated to pie and now the wifi comes on by itself. I have the following things turned to off: wifi preferences - turn on wifi automatically - off,  open network notification - off, network rating - none, passpoint - off, wifi scanning - off.   Tried forgetting networks.  It still keeps turning on.  How do I keep wifi off?

I was really looking for whch app is turning on my wifi.

 

Found this on Android Central.

 

Go to Settings > Apps & Notifications

At the very bottom, expand Advanced

Then at the very bottom, expand "Special App access"

There's a section called "Wifi Control"

In there, go to each app and de-activate Wifi control.

 

I think I found the app. Tracfone put Wifi Utility on the phone. I have turned that off now. I’m surprised at the amount of apps that want to also turn on wifi.  I turned them off too.
