There might be several use cases for using Extract Geometry but i have used it quite often while working on body trims...for example if you have a trim (as a sheet body) with multiple faces then sometime you extract a region (or a set of faces) to do editing locally and finally attaching it to the master body. This helps retain the master body intact and parallely you can do as many operaations on the extracted entity as possible.


Wave geometry linker allows you to take multiple references in context of an assembly. (Extract Geometry helps taking references inside a part only not between the parts).
