That will depend on the email program. All anyone needs to do is find 
one, just one, email program which uses some other temporary location to 
save attachments, say /var/tmp for example, and your statement will be 

"kpdf Save As defaults to /tmp when opened from an email program" is 
incorrect because there is, or might be some day, an email program which 
doesn't use /tmp. Even if it happens to be correct now, it is merely 
contingently true, it is true only by the accident that email programs 
save attachments in /tmp when you open them.

But Michele's comment that kpdf defaults to opening Save As in the 
location where the document is currently saved remains true no matter 
what program you use.
