They do not carry the force of gravity. Virtual particles carry that force if you insist in thinking in the particle mode.

But it is more accurate to use GR and think in the space curvature mode. Space distorts instantaneously. That is why we must consider the entire mass of the universe when determining if it is open or closed.
