Dhcpd fixed-address leases

What is the appropriate way to see lease information on ISC dhcpd 4.2.2 for hosts defined with a fixed-address?  For example, say I have this config:

subnet netmask {
        option routers;
        option subnet-mask;

group {

host some.host.tld {
    hardware ethernet 00:11:22:33:44:55;


I am able to see in my dhcpd logs the full transaction (discover/offer/request/ack) between the client and server.  However, when I look at the leases file or try to look for a lease object with the client's IP in omshell, the lease for that IP is not there.  For what it's worth, leases given to clients from pool declarations are present.  Should I be looking elsewhere, or is the dhcpd log the only place I can check to see if a client has requested a lease and given a fixed-address?
