Must be just you.
Out of the three males and one female dogs I have/have had, ALL four would lift their leg to mark territory (yes, even Keeta!). The kicking their legs back is not that they are trying to bury their poop, but that they are trying to spread their work out over a larger area to claim their superiority over other dogs.
Maybe you just happen to be around more submissive dogs, or younger immature dogs, because leg lifting and odor spreading is still very much a behavior found in the domestic dog.
