If the hard drive and optical drive uses the 3.5" bays, what are the larger bays for?

Optical drives (as well as card readers and fan controllers) use 5.25", and there's no such thing as 3.25" bays, you must mean 3.5" bays.

Do note that some fan controllers and some card reader use 3.5" bays instead.

The larger 5.25" drive bays are meant to house optical drives, card readers, fan controllers, hard drives in a 5.25" enclosure (useful for hot-swapping for example.), a water-cooling water reservoir (fairly uncommon), a power supply (not common at all), to name examples that occur the most.
