General question - minimum service mesh traffic flow

I am a bit confused:

If I add a namespace in SMMR and add the appropriate annotation in my deployment, then envoy is injected and I have a minimum service-mesh-enabled application.

My question is: In this case no virtualService and DestinationRule are created automatically,
also no gateway is automatically created (correction: istio-ingressgateway and istio-egressgateway deployments are created automatically in the control plane namespace)

So how traffic enters the service mesh? When I curl my service (or route), does it go to the envoy ? Or first to the istio-ingressgateway and from there to my service?
