curious if these products really help clean more than the dishwasher detergents? Does it only serve to shine/remove water spots?

I remember reading that many modern dishwashers, Bosch in particular require its use or items in the top rack, particular plastic, will not dry effectively before the cycle is done. This happened in a new Bosch a family member had, as they were too cheap to buy it, and then when they were complaining and added it, it vastly improved the issue.
White vinegar is a cheaper substitute that gets much of the effect.

My new dishwasher recommends using rinse aid to aid with drying. It uses a more energy efficient process of drying via convection (moving air) versus using a heat drying cycle. My dishes were never that spotty, but it does help with drying.

Stopped using this junk about a year into owning our new GE Cafe dishwasher and turned on extra drying. Just coats your dishes with more chemicals. Was rinsing after and the dishes were slippery from the Jet Dry.

This product completely removes all film and debris left over and leaves my dishes crystal clear. I use the highest setting for washing and rinse aid dispersement. At my current rate, this product will last over a year before i will have to buy another one.

I have a water softener and haven't noticed a difference with the Jetdry on my Asko dishwasher. My old house with a kitchenaid dishwasher and no water softener it made the dishes spot free. But I believe the Asko dishwasher with the superior drying and the water softener make the Jetdry unnecessary.
