Default WIFI always on during Deep Sleep

I'm running Archidroid 1.7.3 with Beoffla kernel.
In WIFI -> Advanced options I have set: "Keep WIFI on during sleep = Never" and "Scanning always available" unchecked.
Still in BetterBatteryStats WIFI show up as running 100% of the time.
What can be done to cause WIFI to turn itself off ?

Wifi is always on if u turn it on. When u turn the option off for keep wifi during sleep. It only makes it tat wifi doesnt work. But it is still on.

If BBS shows it running 100% of the time even during sleep, doesn't it eat up the battery ?
I thought the whole idea was to force WIFI off when the screen is off so the battery would drain less.

The meaning is whether u wan to KEEP it running or not. Not on/off. So if u say nvr to keep it running. It will still be on. Just not working. Its kinda complicated. But it saves battery more or less.

It is because when you installed ROM. and during start up tutorial, you did not unchecked "use wifi to help google bla bla EVEN wifi is off"

Go to wifi option - ADVANCED and find that thingy. Uncheck. Profit.

Use DS battery saver. Best battery saving app on the market. It will turn off wifi data for you and wake up every hour or so to receive notifications. no wifi in deep sleep with this bad boy
ArchiDroid V1.7.5 Most powerful rom ever!
Boeffla kernel V12
This setup is stupid quick!

But it will be always running in background to do tat. And uses more battery. All battery saving apps are like this.
