A person performing hajj would not have do Qurbani in either of the two blessed places you have mentioned.
Doing a qurbani would gain a person great reward. But its not obligatory upon you.
Should you reside in either of the cities for more than 15 days, then you would turn into a resident (muqeen) and you would become eligible to perform the qurbani. Should this be the case, you are welcome to do the Qurbani wherever you wish.
Qurbani is only wajib upon the following persons:
- Free person (an individual that is not a slave.)
- Resident, not a traveler
- Person who possesses Nisab of the zakat

Kindly remember us all in your prayers while in Hajj.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
