I am using OpenCV for image recognition and I want to know whether the rotation invariance of cv::SIFT is achieved due to it's detector cv::SiftFeatureDetector or due to it's descriptor cv::SiftDescriptorExtractor. Same thing for cv::SURF.

Thanks, but I just need to know if invariant to rotation is achieved due to cv::SiftFeatureDetector or it's achieved due to cv::DescriptorExtractor ?

It's generally a good idea to try to understand what tools you are using. If you clicked any of the links given above you could answer your own question. With the attitude you are expressing, no one will want to help you.
