I have seen in many videos Third Reference is used when plane has to go through three points only. Is there any other purpose for this Third Reference?
Yes - especially useful for inserting a plane on a twisted or angled part...
It is highly appreciated if you could support with an example.
Sometimes planes need only two references and sometimes planes need three references. Depends on the defining geometry.
This is basically geometry class.

Yes, just for curiosity.
If you say you can't think of any I can assume that is not a usual thing.
As a designer, you have to think of all possibilities which would happen at the end users. Sometimes you need to add some "stupid proof" to prevent the users to make mistake.
Same as programmers, they have to provide as many options as they can so the end users can use their apps effectively
The part below is curved at the red line and for me to be able to add a feature I would need to add a plane - which in this case I can use the three vertex from the slot....
Again it is for 3 point purpose.
The picture shows three points
Plane basically can be created base on points and lines; however, SW provide options of distance and angle for you to offset or rotate a plane
see the att. part. which a plane and 2 points can be used to create a plane
