They are not programs at all.  Each is a collection of programs and
libraries with a coordinated "look and feel".  Each desktop environment
includes at least one window manager, but you can use any combination or
permutation of KDE and/or Gnome programs with any window manager (which is,
as far as X is concerned, just another client).
