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.
