Doesn't exist a native application in Fedora, but you can install Variety , from postinstallerf repository. Or you can compile the source code in Launchpad

The wallpapers with a small clock in the lower-right-hand corner are those which change throughout the day.

(Settings → Background, click the Background or Lock Screen button, then look on the Wallpapers tab.)

On Fedora 22, at least, the default wallpaper is one such.

You can install many more wallpapers by running

sudo dnf install *-backgrounds-gnome

…in a terminal.

If you're still looking for an answer and still using Gnome, try installing wallpapoz from the standard Fedora repositories. It not only rotates backgrounds from whatever list you select, it can set a different one for each desktop so that you can tell by the wallpaper which one you're on. I used it for several years before switching to Xfce, which has rotating backgrounds built in.
