I think that this isn't a bug. From the man pages of brconfig:
Bridge devices create a logical link
between two or more Ethernet interfaces or encapsulation interfaces (see gif(4))
tun0 isn't a Ethernet interfaces. Anyway with OpenVPN you have to use
tap interface, instead of tun interface,to activate bridging.
tun interface is for routing only.
