The government might just go to the cell tracking level, but an individual interested in tracking you has a much better chance of finding your data online through a breach or through an auction on the dark web. That data most likely comes from 3rd party apps rather than the cell networks themselves.

However, I do agree that cellular tracking is also a serious concern that undermines a lot of this work if the tracking is coming from the government.
