Periodic TAU
Periodic tracking area updating is used to periodically notify the availability of the UE to the network. The procedure is controlled in the UE by the periodic tracking area update timer (timer T3412). The value of timer T3412 is sent by the network to the UE in the ATTACH ACCEPT message and can be sent in the TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT message. The UE shall apply this value in all tracking areas of the list of tracking areas assigned to the UE, until a new value is received.

is there any relation to HSS?
T3412 is associated with tracking area update. Tracking area update procedure comes under the mobility management things that's is not related to subscription data.
As far as I know, decision on T3412 value is solely with MME. It could be different scenarios in which T3412 value can vary from one UE to another UE. Implementation would be vendor specific.

It is well understood that Periodic TAU is used by MME to track UE location at the granularity of cell and tracking area.

Other than that, is there any reason of having periodic TAU procedure ?

Is it vendor specific or standard defined the behavior when UE does not report its location to MME even after TAU timer expires ?
Here assumed , LTE UE is out of coverage .
