Default How do my rear brakes adjust in my 2000 Cherokee?

I just did a complete brake job on my jeep cherokee. However, one thing has me stumped. How do the rear brakes adjust? When I assembled them, I turned the star wheel so that they barely dragged on the drum. How do they adjust while I am driving? Do i have to get underneath it every so often and turn the star wheel again? Does it adjust when you use the E-Brake? How do they work. Let me know, thanks!

they should auto adjust if you have everything installed correctly, even the slightest position on the adjust cable being off will cause it not to work, ask me how I know lol, but they adjust mostly when you reverse and come to a stop I do believe, and the ebrake may also work, not totally sure on that part
