Unless flexed, they appear to form a single group of muscles and therefore don’t usually need to be individually articulated. These muscles don’t transition smoothly into the gluteus maximus (the main buttocks muscle above them) but instead meet it perpendicularly. Notice, too, how the big leg muscles taper down into the small tendons at the back of the knee joint. Now you can see what causes that little pocket of space behind the knee that we all have.
