its not free software (as in freedom) i think, but u can try greenify root app.
launch on startup is a mistake in pdroid, imho. apps can hook so many events: startup, network connection changes, power changes (like a charger being plugged in), sd scanned, app installed, etc etc etc. any of these can start an app. the setting in openpdroid is ridiculous and misleading. i agree that its a problem that need be solved, but pdroid doesnt. so its ok, actually better, that xprivacy doesnt have said setting.
these things should be part of a different patch for a different objective, even though the configuration app might be shared.
greenify seems to be a real solution for this, u may want to look into it.

regarding location in maps, i seem to remember that it also happens with pdroid,
first, maps is google, they can grab network and wifi info and locate u with their servers, without ever using the location service on ur phone.
second, google is pushing more and more services into an autoupdating app called google play services, that has rights to everything. when an app uses a service (say location) from google play services, it gets the location. there is nothing pdroid can do. because google is closing source on android. android is silently becoming a closed source OS running on googles closed source services. we cannot legally look into it or modify it.
