No, I think it is from somewhere else:

debian:~# cd /var/lib/dpkg/info
debian:/var/lib/dpkg/info# grep tmp/root *

debian:~# ls -ld /tmp/{kurth,root}
drwx------    2 kurth    kurth        4096 Dec  3 11:53 /tmp/kurth
drwx------    2 root     root         4096 Dec  3 21:22 /tmp/root

I did my last upgrade yesterday morning, well before 21:22. I think
its created by xemacs, or gcc, or similar. Nothing to worry about,
I guess. You see that there is also a directory 'kurth', that's my
login on that box.
