Explain like I’m 5yo. FBI recovers Bitcoin ransom by taking possession of server..

So they have the server for the wallet. But if they don't have the private keys and/or passphrase, How can they technically recover the coins? Are these coins now "burnt" never to be seen again? Just trying to understand how they can recover the coins. TIA.
