camshaft install question

So this may sound stupid..............I put the rear in and then the front per spec.....but now I'm second guessing myself on the rear. I don't remember visually seeing the tabs on the end being seated in the ears on the end of the cam. I don't know how that operates as to wether or not they would catch those pins on their own anyways or whether they absolutely must be in correctly first. I'm gonna pull the cap in the morning to satisfy myself but just wondered if they open and close constantly anyways.

08 Teryx 840 stage III, dalton, dynatek, 48" bed delete", pds k2 cage, fusion head unit, alpine amp, fosgate 8" marine, kicker 10" sub.

They won't just catch it and they stay closed only at very low rpm like starting RPM then they fly out due to centrifugal force.
