Do you switch the phone off?
If not your wifi may be going into sleep mode. Also check that you do not have auto updates activated. Once they start on mobile data most phones stay that way till the download is complete
many Apps regularly check for updates & use background data.
Even if you are connected to WIFI it's possible that when in standby your phone's WIFI goes to sleep.
This could account for your nighttime usage.
