OpenSSL API CRL Revoke Check: Coverage

I'm trying to use OpenSSL to validate a certificate chain with CRLs. To
achieve this, I create a X509_STORE and add trusted (root) certificates
into it via X509_STORE_add_cert(). I also add CRLs published by root and
intermediate CAs into the store using X509_STORE_add_crl(). Then I create a
X509_STORE_CTX for this store and using X509_STORE_CTX_init() function I
set intermediate certs via its chain parameter and target (leaf) cert via
its x509 parameter.
When I verify cert chain using X509_verify_cert:
- Are these CRLs checked for a valid digital signature (both CRLs root &
- Since store should only contain trusted root certificates why should I
add CRLs published by intermediate certificates into the store but not to
somewhere else (for example ctx)?
- Documentation for X509_STORE_add_crl "Untrusted objects should not be
added in this way". What does this mean?
