On my 8.1 system, sticky(8) says:

Nothing there about the sticky bit changing the permissions required
to_overwrite_ a file, which is the subject of the current inquiry.
Even if the sticky bit_did_ have some effect on overwriting a file,
how would that explain the_different_ behavior of the two cases shown?
Actually, sticky has nothing to do with this. I originally spotted the
problem on one device under /dev/ and later just made an example under
tmp. Same behavior was for any other directory.
I still can't get why this happened.
