I can't talk directly to the A7 II, but one of the reasons I was happy to sell the A7R II was this precise problem. It would drain those little batteries whether it was on or off, and I had to keep charging them. I'd carry 3 or 4 for a single shoot. The newer models with the bigger Z series battery are hugely improved. As well as the battery holding a lot more charge, they've removed the drain problem.
