Changing DHCP's subnet mask and static clients

Just wondering if anyone know why changing an active dhcp scope's subnet mask causes no harm to current active leases and also changing the subnet mask of a network to a different but large subnet doesn't impact any static users as well.  

We recently changed a /24 subnet to a /23 and this didn't impact any active users (who still has an IP with the /24 subnet) and also there are still static clients with the /24 subnets.  They are all pointing to the same default gateway.   Why don't the static users who have the /24 need to change their subnet also to the /23 subnet?
