I am new to Junos and trying to figure out how the router makes a decision which routing table to use in the case where multiple instances of routing tables are defined in addition to the master routing table.

There are some default behaviors regarding multiple routing-tables.
- - all IPv4 unicast lookups are done using the inet.0 routing table.
- - All IPv4 multicast lookups are done using inet.1
- - All BGP routes (so BGP routes with a next-hop in BGP) are looked up through inet.3
- - All IPv6 unicast lookups are done using inet6.0
And after all that default behavior you have the self-created routing tables using routing-instances. These are specific routing tables that are only used for the interfaces belonging to the routing-instance.
Or you can steer traffic into the routing-instance using filter based forwarding (FBF).
Using rib-group functionality you can 'leake' route between routing tables.
