So i can confirm it is in fact dagman that's the difference.  if i

same job wrapped in a dag, the files get created with 0644

would it be fair to assume that dagman is launching these jobs as the
user, but it's not pulling the umask from the user, but that of the
condor daemon?

Yes, I think that is exactly what is happening.

So again, I'd suggest telling condor_submit to not bother itself creating the stdout/err files in the first place, and just let that happen when the job runs...
