Wifi network follows me everywhere

Hi, for many years now, I have had wifi networks named Shelby and/or Shelby1 that are always in my wifi list no matter where I am. I was sort of hoping with a new phone, the network wouldn’t be there anymore, but it is. They literally follow me, which makes me think it’s coming from my phone somehow. It seems harmless, as I can just turn wifi off. I can’t connect to them because they are passworded. I have done exhaustive searching and no one else seems to have this problem. I just want to know what they are. They’re always listed under available networks. There aren’t any under "saved."
I have no idea what would be broadcasting them. This has been going on at least 5 years and throughout many new phones. No matter where I am, they’re in the "available" list. At home, at work, at the store, etc. I feel pretty certain that my phone is broadcasting them somehow. The network follows me everywhere I go, so it can’t really be another device. I always have mobile hotspot turned off too. Thanks for any help
