I recently got the question how sticky bit and SELinux play together. I only found this one site about Linux Permissions on Fedora

Are there any other concerns using sticky bits and SELinux together?

Could you elaborate why you are concerned that Sticky Bit might behave strange on SELinux? – Baarn Jul 20 '12 at 22:57
Thanks for editing. No, someone asked me that question, and it got me curious. I only found the link posted and I thought I'd put that question out to a broader audience, since it's not an everyday question. – user857990 Jul 23 '12 at 11:26

SELinux just prohibits some operations that the "standard Unix" permission model would allow. The sticky bit on a directory means that only the owner of a file in it can fiddle with it. On files the sticky bit hasn't meant anything for almost as long as memory serves.
