Yes /tmp was owned by group wheel and news is not a member.
/etc/mtree/4.4BSD.dist indicates that this is correct.
uname=root gname=wheel mode=01777
at least that's what I've always used.

Yet all apparently necessary ownership was correct once the mv was
completed. Though I guess that was more the fact that /var/spool/nn
was owned by group news ?
Ok, so now /var/tmp is owned by group bin
news:8$ touch /var/tmp/junk
news:9$ ls -lg /var/tmp/junk
-rw-rw-r-- 1 news bin 0 Apr 2 11:47 /var/tmp/junk
news:10$ mv /var/tmp/junk /var/spool/nn
mv: /var/spool/nn/junk: set owner/group: Operation not permitted
news:11$ ls -lg /var/spool/nn/junk
-rw-rw-r-- 1 news news 0 Apr 2 11:47 /var/spool/nn/junk
news:12$ ls -aldg /var/tmp
drwxrwxrwt 2 root bin 512 Apr 2 11:48 /var/tmp
uid=8(news) gid=8(news) groups=8(news)
