For instance, any of the void DES_*_encrypt(). This cursory observation is also supported by a vendor application code such as:
static void des_encrypt(char key1, char key2, char key3, char ivec,
char *input, char *output, int len,
DES_ede3_cbc_encrypt((unsigned char *)input, (unsigned char *)output, len,
&schedule1, &schedule2, &schedule3, &des_ivec,
This is basically why I'm wondering about how errors propagate in the OpenSSL library.
