You are right, after 15 minutes, with based turned off and not connected to the PS4 the fan stopped.Yes, the fan will come on when you first plug the power in but it will stop after 15 minutes if the wheel isn’t turned on. In cases where the fan is staying on then something is keeping it awake on the USB side of things. Try disconnecting the USB and you should see that the fan powers off after 15 minutes.
Seems you were right, I just needed to wait those 15 minutes 👍I'm guessing you use rest mode? I'm also guessing the power is coming from the USB port.
I can't remember how it works for PS4 but I presume it's similar to the PS5 instructions below, if not, turning the PS4 off should work.
If so on your PS5 go to Settings -> System -> Power Saving -> Features Available In Rest Mode -> Supply Power To USB Ports and either turn off the power to the USB ports, or put the 3 hour time limit on them, or turn the machine off completely (best option IMHO).
Of course if your not using rest mode then disregard everything I've written
