I do not see any “MGU-H torque” or “ES power” being contributed to the rear driven wheels. Any electrical torque/power can only be contributed to the driven wheels by the ‘K’ through the ICE crankshaft.
When people talk of MGU-H or ES contributions to the rear wheels they are using shorthand.
You are absolutely right that the only components driving the car are the ICE via its crank and the MGU-K by being connected to the crank.
However these are two inanimate objects that need a source of energy. The ICE has only one source of energy, the fuel. The MGU-K has two sources, the MGU-H and the ES. So when someone says the MGU-H is delivering X power to the driven wheels they mean “the MGU-H is delivering energy at the rate of X kilowatts to the MGU-K which is driving the crank and hence the rear wheels”
