Recently, noticed that the blue light filter of the phone is tracking my location. What the hell?

no need just like other apps too many worst permission needs like what need of flipkart (a shopping app) what would the app do by accessing your contact's or camera etc.

this is because to determine the time of your location.. blue light filter is for dark environment so if there is a location data available than system can make necessary changes accordingly.. this is not unnecessary permission or task

Check this out. If you schedule blue light filter based on Sunrise to Sunset it will need your location to figure out its timing.
