That's only the cleanup of the {files} table.

Temporary files coming from uploads are managed by PHP, and should be
automatically removed right at the end of the request (if they have not been
moved before that), as described in http://php.net/features.file-upload

Other temporary files generated by Drupal modules have to be managed by
Drupal. I guess some modules fail to cleanup correctly.
