Why is there no datatransfer on my WIndows Server Backup for the explicitly selected virtual machines?

We setup Windows Server Backup. We chose to do full backups, system state and some selected virtual machines. The backup works properly and no errors are generated. But whne we look into the details of the backup we can see, that there happened no transfer of the virtual machines. Why is this? Is this because we already do a full backup and therefore the virtual machines are not backed up separately? When we try to restore only VMs instead of the whole server, it never works... What are the requirements, that one can restore a VM on a new server? Is this even possible or is the VM backup only intended to be done on the server where it was originally stored on?
