Default Saturn V Third Stages

On the moon missions (8, 10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17) what happened to the Saturn V third stages after they boosted the Apollo CM out of Earth orbit?

The third stage was commonly called S-IVB (ess four bee). They ended up
in quite different places. Apollos 8 thorough 12 left their S-IVBs in a
heliocentric orbit, while Apollos 13 and beyond crashed their third
stage into the Moon--deliberately to cause seismic events of known
energy.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-IVB
