It should simply operate as if those keys were never pressed. The only exception I ever came across was a type of key switch with 2 extra pins that formed a jumper, maybe it easier to lay out the key matrix in the circuit board, but with most key switches all you have are the 2 pins for the switch itself and maybe 1-2 solder lugs for mechanical reinforcement.
