I think you're right. And its not until you try the proper oly lifts that you realise how quad heavy they are. so not only do they smash the quads themselves, but squats are probably the number one lift required for assistance if you want to get heavy. Technique importance or not, catching a snach or clean at any weight over 60kg in that deep position puts your legs through huge forces.

The extra flexion and ROM they are able to achieve through flexibility in the calfs, quads and hip flexors is also a factor. Plus they do a squat variation 3/4 times a week. All of these are big factors for well developed quads.
