Pretty sure FIN means that the spool file was opened but never written to.
I see these only when accessing the spooled files from WRKUSRJOB. We do not see these with WRKSPLF. And we definitely do not see them from ACS printed output.

Subject: ACS & FIN spooled files
In ACS Printer Output I used the filter to show spooled files for a
specific job. ACS gave an error message and prompted me to generate
service logs. IBM support tells me this is because spooled files exist at
a FIN status, and ACS is working properly. They suggest changing QSPLFACN
from the default of *KEEP to *DETACH.
Anyone familiar with that system value? Are they any other considerations
regarding changing it from the default?
