The quoted code is just a fragment of the actual condition, which is:

  if (strcmp(udev_device_get_subsystem(dev), "net") == 0 &&
      strcmp(udev_device_get_action(dev), "add") == 0) {

Which I'd read as "if the device's subsystem is 'net'" and "if the
device is being added". The 'dev' is some kind of data structure
containing info about the device, nothing to do with /dev.
