Confirmed. I think the problem is that "airplane mode" doesn't really
exist. It's just the state in which all radios (reported by 'rfkill')
are set to soft blocked.

Yeah, gnome-shell ideally should be doing better here. Inverting
airplane mode is a mistake. It should only be enabling wifi.

Bug description:
  Whenever the WiFi feature is turned off after usage,the system
  automatically goes to Airplane mode.If the user turns on the WiFi
  again by selecting the option Select Network in WiFi menu bar then a
  dialog box is displayed with the option of TURN OFF THE AIRPLANE
  MODE.After clicking the option, the Bluetooth automatically gets TURN
  ON without users willing(Even though not required).Or if continue with
  turning on the WiFi ,another dialog box appears with the option of
  TURN ON WiFi. After clicking this option ,the system will search for
  WiFi networks. Once the desired network is selected the WiFi starts
  working. After this if the user check the Bluetooth, it gets started
  automatically with use.This may lead to quick battery drainage.

  In short, the Bluetooth gets automatically started even if not
  required after turning the airplane mode OFF. Please solve this bug.
