From the page http://www.digitalmars.com/d/2.0/interface.html, the 4th example:

interface D {
    void bar();
    static void foo() { }
    final void abc() { }
}

class C : D {
    void bar() { } // ok
    void foo() { } // error, cannot override static D.foo()
    void abc() { } // error, cannot override final D.abc()
}

The abc() definition will error out, but the foo() one will not. This is
contrary to what it states in the docs:

"Classes that inherit from an interface may not override final or static
interface member functions."

There is no error, as foo is _not_ overriding anything.  If you add the
override keyword it makes this very clear:
Error: function testx.C.foo does not override any function
