Interesting that you are commenting on the script without reading it.
You actually need to read the bridge component in conjunction with ifup
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.
