On the road, you are constantly shifting position. Whether it's shifting weight balance while cornering, getting out of the saddle for a climb/sprint, or simply from the bike rocking side to side while pedaling, you're constantly using your muscles/joints differently. On the other hand, when you are on a trainer, you're essentially locked into place. Which puts extra stress on certain areas...it's just the nature of indoor training.

However, if it's too the point that it's causing an injury, you might look into changing your position, slightly, while indoors. For back of the knee pain, I'd try lowering your saddle a few mm.
