Well, this actually depends on couple of things.. First, ca_path is only
currently supported with OpenSSL, but there are even some differences
there based on what exactly is set in ca_cert. It looks like the current
implementation would not be using ca_path if ca_cert is set as a blob or
as Windows certificate store. However, it does get passed to OpenSSL in
case ca_cert is pointing to a certificate file (which was the case in
this particular example).
