Soul torches work mostly the same as regular torches. They act as a light source for the player to utilize. The most noticeable difference being the blue light cast. Soul torches also emit a lower light level than normal torches (12). Unlike normal torches, soul torches will not melt snow and ice. However, soul torches act like piglin repellant by keeping them at least 7 blocks away. This applies to everything that uses soul light.
