That is not correct. Tomcat 8 does not extract JARs or classes to the work
directory under any circumstances.

One of the options considered to address the performance problems is to restore
the extraction of the JARs to the work directory but that creates complexity in
an area where we have been trying to reduce it. This is still an option of last
resort but my preference - where possible - is to address the reasons why
people can't use unpackWARs="true".
