I’ve seen some different people use a white pen/pencil to write on their wood, like in these photos:

Could anyone explain what it is, why use it and where to get them?

That would be a grease pencil, also called china marker. You can get them at any office supply store and I even picked one up at Wallyworld once.

We use the Wite-Out pens when cutting granite, should work on wood as well.

There is an actual white artists pencil that sharpens like a regular pencil. Artist supply carries them.
