Doubtful they are in a working flue cap, that's HEAT, they won't be there. You can never tell where they overwinter, could be anywhere. And when they say "close," that could mean within 50 yards. But that's not for sure, they could go MILES.
And if they overwinter "together," it wouldn't be in a bunch, or a huddle. It might just mean that several found the same place. They would have no contact or awareness of each other. I see them a lot in crawl spaces, but I can't say I've seen more than a couple in any crawl space. But these are small creatures, they can be easily missed. Don't worry about that part.
