Android 11 wifi SSID is unknown in background even when lcoation permissions is granted

I tested this code in Android 11

val networkRequest = NetworkRequest.Builder().apply {
connectivityManager.registerNetworkCallback(networkRequest, object : ConnectivityManager.NetworkCallback() {
    override fun onAvailable(network: Network) {
        val wifiName = getCurrentlyConnectedName() ?: return
        val wifiMac = getCurrentlyConnectedMac() ?: return
        Timber.d("WifiStateManager onAvailable() called with: network = [$wifiName]")

    override fun onLost(network: Network) {
        Timber.d("WifiStateManager onLost() called with: network = [$network]")

And notices a strange behavior. When the app is in the background wifi ssid is always <unknown> (please note that Location permission is granted 100%). When the app is in the foreground everything is OK and I get the correct wifi ssid.

Why this is happening? How to get wifi SSID even when the app is in the background on Android 11?
