Why u no bury poop?

Almost a month ago, my BF and I adopted two beautiful shelter kitties. Overall, they're great cats, but we're somewhat befuddled that (at least one of) the cats refuse to bury their poop when using the litter box. Is this something we should be concerned about? Details and pictures within!

So this is Heath
(5 y.o.), and this big dude is Dexter
, aka Mini Panther (13 mo.). Both male, neutered, and have been pretty companionable with each other thus far. They had been previously litter-trained, and happily there have been zero accidents so far. It just seems odd to both me and BF that they'll poop in the box and then just leave it there? We use unscented litter, and the box is scooped out religiously every day, completely changed probably every 4-5 days. Is this a sign that the box needs to be scooped/cleaned even more? Or are they just not terribly concerned with...flushing, I suppose?
I know on the scale of things, this is probably (I HOPE) a minor issue with what are otherwise very sweet and affectionate little guys. I was just hoping to get some insights to see if this may be a sign of something we should be concerned about. Thanks very much!
