It isn't. Fixed-address assignments do not go through the normal 
(dynamic) lease process and aren't recorded in the lease database.
If you want "fixed" addresses to go through the normal lease 
lifecycle (including DDNS and recording in the lease database) then 
you may want to look at reserved leases.
