Default WiFi is always On on battery sats

Below is the screenshot of my battery usage. I disabled cell radio and WiFi at 12 midnight until 6am. As you can see radio is off (see the gap) but my WiFi has no gap. I can assure you the WiFi is disabled. I don't see the WiFi icon during those time. FYI since I got the phone last January I really don't disable my WiFi even if not in use. Is this a bug?

In Wi-Fi advanced settings make sure "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep is not set to always (Default)

Thanks man. What does "only when plugged in" mean. So even if I set it to always, it does not consume battery? Because I can see that I improve battery after disabling radios. Like I save 8% of battery.

1. always on even in sleep
2. only on in sleep if phone is being charged
3. never on in sleep
