here are two pictures of my emperor scorpions....When I uncovered my two emps to make sure they wre still alive and one of them were in a burrow but it couldnt fit its whole body in..Does this mean the substrate isnt deep enough or they just didnt dig that deep? After I did this post i added some potting soil and im going to add more spaghum moss..

It could be any of the things you mentioned. You should put at least one inch of substrate for every inch of the scorpion. Don’t dig them up, that stresses them out real bad and destroying their burrows makes it worse. Imps are not going to be seen a whole lot, they are burrowing scorpions.
Sometimes they’ll dig deep burrows, sometimes not.
