The permissions of /tmp are likely to be changed if you:
tar xfz ...
As the tar archive contains an entry for the current directory, the
/tmp directory gets usually permissons of 755 after this.
No idea what might happend to /var/spool.
To answer your question, I don't know of such a file permission list
(except for suid programs). The base-files package, for example,
contains the /tmp directory including its correct permission, but the
permissions are not part of the /var/lib/dpkg/info/base-files.list
