What's the rtnetlink behavior if adding or removing ethernet?

Hello All,

While I am studying on RTNETLINK, I understand that the kernel will send RTM_ADDLINK or RTM_DELLINK if interface is added/removed at kernel space. However, I have a question regarding to the RTNETLINK message if adding or removing ethernet to/from bridge? Since adding or removing ethernet to / from bridge is not actually adding or removing interface, is there any RTNETLINK message actually transferring in between?
