FY the DFSORT manual tells me that TRAILER1, TRAILER2, and TRAILER3 control card parameters indicate a report is going to be generated for the OUTFIL group.

I have seen you use the parameters when generating an output file. My question is this:

What dictates the use of these parameters when generating an output file?

You would use TRAILER1 when you want a report trailer to appear by itself as the last page of the report. This is also handy for creating one record with a count or date.

You would use TRAILER2 when you want a page trailer to appear at the bottom of each page of the report.

You would use TRAILER3 within SECTIONs when you want a section trailer to appear after the last data record of each section.

For an overview of OUTFIL reports, see:
