I get this same problem. I don't think it's a bug, but I really wish they'd change how it's implemented. I don't have a data plan so I want my data to always be disabled.

The workaround I've found so far is to go to settings > personal > my location > disable Automatic Assisted GPS.

Now when I open Maps it doesn't re-enable data for me.

"settings > personal > my location > disable Automatic Assisted GPS"

Is correct. If the option is enabled it will attempt to use cell towers to help with GPS. Disabled it will not.
