Same problem with italian firmware after January security patches.
Very disappointing assistance and info about from Sony support team.
It is clearly a software issue that needs a fix.

My phone appears to be connecting all the time to location services and battery usage is up! I turn off location services and restart phone and all back to normal (but as soon as i use location services then problem is back again)

I have discovered the same. But I still have not figured out what keeps the "position usage" notification up. Some times if I use location based apps, the marker disappears after closing the app. But sometimes it remains forever until I restart my phone - even if I have closed and stopped all running services and apps. Not even airplane mode stopps the location service.
This issue has defintelty popped up with the latest update. Never had this before!
Build-Number: 47.1.A.12.34 (Security Patchlevel: January 2018)

You might experience that GPS icon is visible in the status bar although the location setting is off. This is known and will be corrected in a future software release.
