This was surprising, since I have the "clear temp directories on
boot" option set to "yes" in the YaST sysconfig editor module.

Is this no longer the 'correct' method to cleat the temp
directories? How should I make sure that these directories do not
become overloaded with redundant files in future?

That's right, the feature was removed, but the sysconfig files and
setting remain. And not honoured.

I just verify that this is still in the cron options in yast
(13.1). From memory I think I've seen some thread saying this is
deprecated, but I don't find where.

Yes, several posts.

may be /tmp is the next candidate for tmpsfs in ram?

Past candidate.

AFAIK, /tmp is a tmpfs in pure systemd setups, according to the devs.
openSUSE did not agree, and /tmp remains a real directory on openSUSE

So, upstream, they assume that /tmp just is recreated on boot, so no
need to purge it. I don't know why the openSUSE cron jobs were
removed. And the systemd mechanisms to clean old files on /tmp do not
work, of course.

That is the state of affairs as far as I know. My memory is not perfect.
