What does "just happen to live" means in this sentance?

A static method is an ordinary function that just happens to live in the namespace defined by a class.

static method & namespace & class are just terms.  What confuses me is the phrases "just happens to live"

in the sentence. Someone please help me with that. Thanks.

Sounds like a line from a coding text.  "Just happens to live" means that it occurs within with a little connotation that there's no particular reason for it to be there.  It is there but without a definite, clear cause.
