Hmm... this seems odd to me... any idea why this was done?
I believe this is the relevant NEWS entry:
I think the idea is to ensure that a bridge always has the same
address, as by default it gets the address of whichever slave
happens to join first - that's fine in the common case where
there is one address added at boot and then others come and go
but may be non-deterministic if multiple addresses are added
at boot time.
