In dsdte it has an option to extract my Dsdt, so I'm wondering why it is necessary to extract a Dsdt whilst in linux or windows rather than using dsdte?

Linux and Windows are by design able to run on PC hardware and therefore can read hardware information correctly, those providing more correct data. In this case ACPI tables, DSDT in particular.

While OS X is designed to run on hardware designed by Apple, and not designed to run on ANY PC. Therefore it may not read hardware information correctly. Moreover, due to various hacks required to run OS X on PC hardware, the OS X may be presented with incorrect data about hardware used.

There is why one need to obtain correct data through reliable sources.
