[stunnel-users] UID/GID/Permissions Issue

I've installed STUNNEL, works great, etc. etc. etc.

Just one thing is a mystery ....

The daemon definitely runs with UID "stunnel" (as I set it up), but still
somehow it is able to grab its own keys and cert, as well as the client
cert, which I set with root-only access.

How is that possible?  Does it buffer these things during startup (as
root) before it sets UID/GID to stunnel, or am I missing something?
