is it really critical if data is extracted into the tmp folder? Older data in this folder should be automatically deleted after time or if a certain thrseshold is reached.

in linux systems the tmp folder is cleared during the system start up, which is a very wise strategy. In Mac OS is is for sure the same since this is based on BSD.

I can't imagine a secure periodical deletion strategy of "old" files in the tmp folder.

What is the strategy implemented in Windows?

In windows it is configurable but by default automatic cleaning of the temp file is switched off. If switched on it can be configured when the delete should take place. Parameters are time and remaining space. I did not find out if there is something like a (configurable) temp removal during restart.

So I agree that it is at least not good practice to not delete the created temporary folders.
