According to the Glossary linked at the top of this page, it says after a spare, but since every frame you have up to possible shots, I believe it could be any time you have a third ball in the tenth.

My take is every mark, spare or strike, cannot be recorded until another or two balls are rolled. A spare requires another ball to record a score, while a strike requires 2 extra balls. The extra balls would then be considered a fill shot to complete the scoring.

I don't completely buy into that. Sure for a first ball strike, or a spare in the tenth you throw another ball to complete scoring, but that's how the game is set up. You can finish the game with a strike or a spare during the fill ball and you don't roll any more balls to complete the scoring.

Unless there is something I am missing the game of bowling consists of 10 frames. 10 spares is a clean game.
Any mark in the 10 maybe followd by 1 or 2 fill balls NOT additional frames.

yes - first ball strike or second ball spare and the tenth frame is considered closed - any and all fill balls (second and/or third for the first ball strike and third for the spare) are just that - fills.
