The /mnt directory is used for creating mount points, specifically for temporary mounting of storage devices by the administrator, whether this is by way of /etc/fstab entry, manual mounting, or similar. The 'auto-mounting' of removable meida is facilitated by udisks and the desktop environment, and it is hard-coded to do so via the /media tree with appropriate permissions designed for user access.
