First, "%t" is not a variable but a placeholder used for expansion.
Second, how should AUCTeX know if you want to process the document,
the current buffer or a region?  You have to explicitely tell it to
execute the intended option.  That's why there are commands like
`TeX-command-master', `TeX-command-buffer' or `TeX-command-region'.

Maybe it helps reading the doc string of `TeX-command', especially
what it expects as its second argument.
