This one is configurable in /etc/rc.conf, take a look at
/etc/defaults/rc.conf for default settings and explanations:

| clear_tmp_enable="NO"   # Clear /tmp at startup.
| clear_tmp_X="YES"       # Clear and recreate X11-related directories in /tmp

OTOH you can configure /tmp/ as memory file system (which is clear with
every reboot cause of its nature) using settings like

| tmpmfs="YES"
| tmpsize="128m"
| tmpmfs_flags="-S"

in /etc/rc.conf (in this example 128 MB of /tmp without soft-updates).
