i do not think thatr this is a bug. please see:

    def get_vif_by_mac_address(self, context, mac_address):
        """Returns the vifs record for the mac_address."""
        # NOTE(vish): This is no longer used but can't be removed until
        # we major version the network_rpcapi to 2.0.
        # NOTE(russellb) No need to object-ify this since
        # get_vifs_by_instance() is unused and set to be removed.
        vif = self.db.virtual_interface_get_by_address(context,
        if vif.get('network_id') is not None:
            network = self._get_network_by_id(context, vif['network_id'])
            vif['net_uuid'] = network['uuid']
        return vif

The abovementioned code is not in the nova-network API implementation. AFAICT this does need to be implemented.
