I have noticed that Location gets active randomly when using the phone even when I don't have any background apps that uses location active in the background.
Below is a link to how it looks like from the home screen (The small circle to the left of the clock at the right side), it comes on sporadically, stays there for a few seconds, then goes away:
Find my Phone feature is turned off, and looking through the settings the only other option I see is probably turning location off for search and see if it stops happening when I'm not using any apps.
Anyone else noticing this?

I wouldn't be worried. Most likely a live tile or app that "requires" location services and it is just pinging your location.
Same thing happened with my iphone all the time. The iphone did, however, show a list of applications that either recently, or currently were using location services. Would be nice to have that same feature in WP8.
