Self correction. Mine is doing it too. It goes away after a reboot but, sooner or later, icon comes back. 

 

I've not been able to find which application triggers it. 

 

Before usual questions, I haven't performed a factory reset and I am not going to. 

 

Phone is free from geo information hungry apps like Facebook, Twitter, Pokémon, Garmin and so on.

Re: Location sign

Most likely there is one or more apps that switch it on on the background.

To find out which apps those are you can goto settings> search for location

You will see 'recent location requests'

 

In settings you gan goto apps and disable location permission for those apps that you don't want to use it.
