tmpfile documentation states that "Return a new file
object opened in update mode ("w+b")."
update mode is "a" the specified modes is "write,
binary", unclear which is correct

I'm not sure why you think that "a" is update mode; "a"
indicates append, not necessarily general update.  Since the
documentation states explicitly that "w+b" in what's meant,
there's no ambiguity.
