It depends on how memcache is used and how often you disregard things
In memcache it's better to store things that doesn't matter if it's a
Query cache is better for things that changes 'relatively seldom' (not
more than once a second) as it's 'never out of date'.
It's not useful to cache the same kind of data with both caches...

As you normally ask memcache first if a query is there, it will take

tmp_table_size and max_heap_table_size have nothing to with query
cache. These are just restriction for how much memory that
MySQL/MariaDB will use for resolving a query.

This is depending on your queries.

This happens because many of your queries are resolved by the query
cache and thus there is no need to run the query (that apparently is
using temporary tables to resolve the query).
