Ok let me explain this a little better.
On the functional rails you have 2 components, the
1) stainless rail
2) the housing for that rail (which is just the outter black plastic runner)
So, on the housing you have that one one side (it is actually the front the picture you grabbed) and then on the back side (side closest to rear of car) you see this:
So. We have either 5 or 6 bolts total on each side. (cant remember, I'm thinking 5 actually is right) Either way that doesn't matter, the housing gets its position on the roof from those 2 "holders" if you will.
Imagine having the first and the last bolt in the roof. (Closest to front and closest to rear) You take this housing and slide it from the back to the front until its locked in. Then you put the rail in and bolt all the middle ones down
Here is a very elaborate diagram, hopefully this makes it more clear
