Netscape portions

Possibly a stupid question, but can anyone tell me why portions of Netscape are created with bottle generation?  The whole program is clearly not present, at least not in my CrossOver.

We don't use Netscape, but rather the Mozilla Firefox HTML rendering engine called Gecko for our clone of the Internet Explorer libraries(mshtml et al). So just the rendering engine is available, not the browser GUI and other things. I think that the rendering engine isn't in the bottle even, it is just in the CrossOver installation directory or CrossOver.app. However, I am not sure about that, maybe it is copied into every bottle.
