The jets might not actually contain much matter, but since they are accelerated to such high velocities their energy would be really, really high. And a lot of energy is equivalent to a little mass (e=mc^2). This would probably make the jets a LOt easier to detect and might even make them look more 'massive'-more particles-in that more photons (x-rays, gamma rays, etc.) are being released from the matter.
