Dallas Texas or so
Even with mobile data turned off it is probably still tracking location through GPS or cell phone towers or something like that just for 911 and copy in cop poop.

If the phone is completely powered off then they probably can't do it but by a faraday cage and stick it in there that way you know they can't do it.

This phone leaves the house for maybe 6 hours a week.
Data and location turned off.

Is it possible for a phone to use mobile data when it is turned off?
Ohhhh, you meant when mobile data is turned off, not the phone. That's different.
Like helping your Uncle Jack off a horse, or helping your uncle jack off a horse.

Yes, it's possible. There was, for example, an Android bug that let phones use data for location services even when data was turned off. Seems likely there's another bug at play here.

Yes.

Thing is, the phone rarely leaves the house.
