Nothing in the certificate but the key impacts the processing model standardized at OASIS and used by this software. The only reason it ever matters is when the SP is broken and refuses to run with a certificate that's expired itself. If it's running, then there is nothing you need to do and nothing you should do.

That's not true. It works because the expiration doesn't matter, and that applies to both signing and encryption.
