Does the OCI number change after renewal of OCI for new passport or it remains the same?

I applied OCI in lieu of PIO for my daughters and received their OCI without OLD PIO card. On inquiry I got to know that they don't returned old PIO. I understand that Old PIO is not a valid document anymore but my questions are :-

1. CKGS OCI status workflow path shows PIO card return path too. Is this incorrect or they use to send old PIO card in past and recently change the process?.
2. Also, CKGS has charged us fees for two envelops from CKGS to us whereas I only received one envelop i.e. OCI card. My understanding was the other one if for old PIO.
3. Generally old document needs to be returned with cancel stamp the way old passport are returned. My old PIO cards have details of my travel that may be required for future reference.

Do anyone received OLD PIO card ?

The government site says document printing status - under process.
Does this mean the verification is done and just the printing is pending.
