I understand what tail recursion is. I'm just not confident about when or how
it gets applied in OpenSCAD.

It would be nice if that were true, but the nature of OpenSCAD means that
things can easily get stack constrained. even when they are working
properly.  For example, Ronaldo didn't modify the tree insertion function
for some aesthetic reason but rather because stack overflows were a
practical issue.
