I'm really not sure what you are asking here, so bear with me...

The tmpfiles.d fragment is documented in the tmpfiles.d(5)[0] and the
tmpfiles utility is documented in systemd-tmpfiles(8)[1].

Both in systemd and initscripts we call "/usr/bin/systemd-tmpfiles
--clean" to clean up old files.

If you want to add your own custom stuff instead then in initscripts
you'd make a hook (as before) and in systemd you'd add a .service file
