I think you could make a plausible argument for /var/lib/misc or
/var/run .  (The latter is mostly PID files, but the description of
"system information data describing the system since it was booted" that
"must be cleared (removed or truncated as appropriate) at the beginning
of the boot process" matches what swapfiles are.)
