Spells only get the benefit of buffs that are up when the spells are cast. So if you put all your DoTs up on a target and then use a spell damage trinket, the DoTs will not get a bonus from that trinket. Likewise, a shadowbolt will not get the buff from a trinket or whatnot if the buff runs out before the shadowbolt is cast. However, this does mean that if you cast a channeled spell (drain life, arcane missiles, mind flay) while a buff is up, and the buff runs out in the middle of the channel, any damage done after the buff runs out is still getting the buff, as the spell was cast while the buff was up.
