The defrost termination thermostat resets at the 25* temperature to give power to the heater during the next defrost cycle.  It opens at what you say is 50* to cut the power to the heater to keep the freezer from getting too warm while the rest of the defrost time, 21 minutes, run out.  Surprised at the 50* open temperature, tho.  Whirlpool usually uses a 60* or 70* cut out temperature.  Keep us posted about what you find.
