No, there is not relation between renewals and license deactivations. Theorically that should happen only by a hardware or BIOS change.
A different issue is the activation procedure which must be done using the renewal code. This procedure is necessary to update the license subscription date, but even if this step fails or is skipped, the license is not deactivated.
Have you verified that licenses are inactive in the License Manager, or do you get an error using the plugins ?
