yum files in /tmp

I am getting /tmp/yum_save_tx.2017-12..... files in /tmp one every hour.
What process is making these files ???
I have stopped PackageKit so its not running.

I am running CentOS 7.4. With GNOME desktop. Thanks

Ok so I looked for yum in cron and did not find it.

cd /etc
# grep yum cron*

grep: cron.d: Is a directory
grep: cron.daily: Is a directory
grep: cron.hourly: Is a directory
grep: cron.monthly: Is a directory
grep: cron.weekly: Is a directory

# grep yum cron*/*

and the files:
ls -lR cron.*
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 5 Jan 25 2016 cron.allow
-rw------- 1 root root 0 Aug 3 11:33 cron.deny

cron.d:
total 16
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 128 Aug 3 11:33 0hourly
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 108 Jun 13 10:08 raid-check
-rw-r--r--. 1 root root 459 Jun 24 2015 sa-update
-rw------- 1 root root 235 Aug 3 05:30 sysstat

cron.daily:
total 12
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 2239 Jun 9 2014 certwatch
-rwx------ 1 root root 219 Aug 1 21:12 logrotate
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 618 Mar 17 2014 man-db.cron

cron.hourly:
total 4
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 392 Aug 3 11:33 0anacron

cron.monthly:
total 0

cron.weekly:
total 0

Thoughts? Thanks,

Jerry

Even though PackageKit was not running - I went ahead and removed that
package and it has stopped.

Thanks,

Jerry

You might also look in /var/log/cron to see what's firing off hourly.
