Openvpn key system

We've got an openvpn system. It is setup and working. However sometime in the past a few of the keys and certs in */easy-rsa/2.0/keys have met the ether. These people can still login. This isn't the end of the world. However I would like a confirmation on why this is. In my searching of the internet I have come to the conclusion that when a key is made for a client it makes a hash off of the ca.pem such that openvpn does not need a particular key locally, because it can just reverse the hash off of ca.pem

This is the part that I am not sure if it correct. Mostly because i haven't bumped into anything that says "That is how it works."

If I could get some kind of confirmation on my theory, that would be great.
