The vif interface itself is not indicative of a bridge.
Whether you have a bridge or not depends upon how your Xen
installation is setup. If you look at /etc/xen/xend-config.sxp
you'll see that you have several choices for the two settings
"network-script" + "vif-script". These two settings are designed
to work together.
Available choices include:
If you use the first of these settings, network-bridge/vif-bridge,
you'll have a bridge-based network.
If you use either "network-route" or "network-nat" you will not.
This is explained in the Xen networking documentation, as well
as in the documentation contained withing the xend-config.sxp file
If you have a need you can create your own network setup and
use those instead, again choosing for yourself wheter to bridge
