Avamar + Celerra + FMA + Centera

I have a question about Avamar NDMP backups of archive data.

I have a Celerra which archives data to a Centera with the help of the FMA. I backup the Celerra using Avamar NDMP.  How does Avamar handle stub files, and does it have the capability to recall the file and back it up?

Right now, when I look at the backed up files in any of the Celerra file systems, the archived files show a size of 0. I have restored deleted archived files, but I am guessing that I just restored the stub file. If something happens to the Centera, I am afraid I may not be able to restore the file.

Environment: Avamar 5 and Celerra DART 6.
