I knew that...sorry I was misleading. Thank you for clarifying. I should have said something like "at about the same time..."
I was trying to speak to the OPs observation that the tar files timestamps were "about the same time" as the makewhatis.cron execution, which led me to suspect that it was another /etc/cron.daily task.

I just yesterday had occasion to identify the script/cron job creating a file every day. It was a thing I set up many, many years ago and I could not remember which script it was. Since it was a daily job, I just did what I'd suggested here earlier
Code:
grep filename /etc/cron.daily/*
and it popped right out!
