In a nutshell, yes, I'm sure it's illegal to use either front or rear fog lights when the conditions are not appropriate. My only uncertainty is the exact offence that you can be charged with. I do know that it carries points and a fine.

Just because plod doesn't usually bother to write you a ticket doesn't mean that you're not breaking the law. They can let you off with a caution for speeding, jumping a red light or other traffic offences if they feel so inclined. They tend to be lenient with fog lights because some people genuinely don't realise they're switched on, while others are unsure of what constitutes appropriate conditions.
