Little question about device driver name

Hi folks,

I just wonder why if_bridge(4) is prefixed by if_ for device name.
Every other device name like lagg(4), gif(4) are not prefixed with
this same one.

Is there any reason that bridge is prefixed with it ? (I don't know if
there is other device like that, but what I saw in conf/NOTES seems
