Default GPS keeps Running in the background?

So I was wondering if anyone else has this issue with GPS running in the background. All I did was use google maps on high accuracy settings and then turn off location. I noticed my battery was draining like crazy and saw that google maps was still using GPS 15 hours later. Is it a android bug, app bug or ROM bug? I'm running the latest paranoid stable. Rebooting seems to stop it by the way.

Use Greenify to stop Maps from running in the background.
