No application does that. "Save" in any application will save the
revised document over the existing file - in the same folder. If the
document has not been saved, "Save" will give you the "Save As"
functionality instead, landing you initially in whatever default
folder you have configured (or some default if you haven't).
What you may be doing is opening attachments from received e-mail
messages. Such a document will not so far have been saved by you on
your system, so it may indeed be held in some difficult-to-find
temporary folder and "Save" will save your carefully edited version
in a folder which will be confusing and hard to find. But the
solution is simple, of course: you should save the document where you
want it to reside before you start editing. Then "Save" will do
exactly what you need and expect.
I think this same un-findable folder is used for saving when the
program auto-saves; ...
No: that will be a different place! The first folder is governed by
your e-mail application, but this one by LibreOffice.
I trust this helps.
