Whenever i change WiFi network, GPS just keeps turning on. I turned off GPS and
change system settings permissions for every app, but it still keeps happening. Recent location requests shows that no apps have used that permission. Turning off google's find my phone also doesn't help. What is going on?

You can try to go to Settings -> Connections -> Wi-Fi -> Three-Dots-Menu -> Advanced -> Turn on Wifi automatically -> turn this setting off.
It seems like some devices claim access to GPS in order to find the available WiFi networks if this setting is activated.
