The Vedas, in the time of the Buddha, were being reformulated according to the Upanisads. These texts were giving a symbolic twist to Vedic ritual life such that the last quarter of ones life was spent as an eremite performing Vedic ritual in a purely meditative way, rather than physically. Two of these sorts of meditating wanderers would instruct the Buddha after he left the home life, and the Buddha rejected their teachings as not leading to the cessation of suffering - though he still learned meditation from them. When you read about wanderers of other sects in the Suttas you are reading about other Upanisadic eremites (later anchorites as well), Jains among them, and in all cases the Buddha teaches by the Middle Way, neither affirming nor denying the metaphysical assertions of his contemporaries.
