    Maybe the "Settings/Connections/WiFi/Advanced/Turn on Wi-Fi automatically" is enabled? That feature, if on, apparently turns on WiFi when you are in frequently visited places.

    Hm, maybe a Bixby routine?

    Most likely you have auto reconnect turned on for the network you keep auto connecting to.

    Go to your Network and Internet settings. Look for Wifi. Move the slider to OFF. Your WiFi should not come on unless the slider is turned On. If the slider is turned to On then, those other things you say could happen depending on phone, carrier and network settings and other mysterious reasons.

    Go to apps, permissions, and turn off Wi-Fi for August. You will need to manually turn it on to use going forward. Good luck
