I'm worried about my scorpions molting within their burrows. I'm uncomfortable where I can't see them, lol. Do they generally come out to molt? Or will they molt underground if able?

Sometimes they moult in their burrows, sometimes they moult in the open, sometimes they moult under a hide, some species even moult hanging vertically or upside down, and others have been known to moult on their back!

If you suspect a scorpion to be coming up to a moult, the main thing to do is not disturb it. They may even go as far as closing the entrance to their burrow in preparation to moulting (presumably to keep out predators and/or increase humidity) and stay hidden for weeks or even months.

This is all very normal and you just have to be patient. So long as you are providing the correct conditions for your scorpion, it will moult successfully and reappear at some point as a shiny 'new', slightly larger version of its former self.
