In my config, I have

I added a number of extra extensions to the default value for files created by RefTeX, Beamer, Synctex, etc. I want to clean up all these files once I'm done
with a document.

However, this does not work. E.g., it leaves RefTeX's .rel files around. Why is that? Is it because TeX-clean-default-intermediate-suffixes is defined by a defvar in tex.el, rather than a defcustom? Shouldn't this be a customizable option in the first place? If not, what is the proper way to add the extra

You should probably customize `LaTeX-clean-intermediate-suffixes`. `TeX-clean-default-intermediate-suffixes` just provides the default value for `LaTeX-clean-intermediate-suffixes`, which is why it's not a defcustom. (I assume that setting it doesn't have any effect because its value is not checked when cleaning out files. The value of `LaTeX-clean-intermediate-suffixes` is used for that.
