FHS chapter 5
The /var/tmp directory is made available for programs that require
temporary files or directories that are preserved between system
reboots. Therefore, data stored in /var/tmp is more persistent than
data in /tmp.
Files and directories located in /var/tmp must not be deleted when the
system is booted. Although data stored in /var/tmp is typically
deleted in a site-specific manner, it is recommended that deletions
occur at a less frequent interval than /tmp.
