aptosid doesn't ever create any of those files and none of my (installed long time ago) systems has those, so they must be a relict of some "non-standard" applications you use (like an editor with auto-backup or some GUI application that allows modifying the sources.list).

For me kwrite created .asm~ backup for an .asm file.
This can be changed in the editor settings.

By correctly quitting the nano editor?

.save are emergency files created by nano. See "man nano".

In "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/" directory after operations with repositories - install or update, anyway. Sorry for not correct question.

Oh! Repositories were obviously added by synaptic.

Manual editing of the list files is the preferred way.
