When i am importing Accounts(standard account object) from Salescloud in marketing cloud via import activity it's getting saved under My Data extensions, however when i import contacts (standard account object) from Salescloud, its getting stored under salesforce data extension. Any specific reason behind this behavior?

With the Marketing Cloud Connector, Contacts and Leads are objects that can be sent to so a Salesforce Data Extension is created when imported so it could be used as the target for a send. The Account object can not be the target for a send which is why it isn't created as a Salesforce Data Extension.
