Interesting that you are commenting on the script without reading it. 
You actually need to read the bridge component in conjunction with ifup 
and /etc/sysconfig/ifconfig.br0.

In short, yes, it is brought up after creating.  Looking at it, there 
may be an issue that I didn't check.  It seems a little unusual to 
assign a dhcp address to a bridge, so I've never checked it with that 
combination.  The dhcp service does try to run before the bridge is 
brought up, so those scripts may need customization for this case.
