This is on purpose, upstream. We'll be making a conscious decision of hiding these virtual devices given that NM isn't supposed to manage them, and showing them might confuse users.

This bug was fixed in the package network-manager-applet -

network-manager-applet ( vivid; urgency=medium

  * debian/patches/nm-applet-use-indicator.patch: initialize GSList dupes var
    to NULL. Thanks to Patrik Fimml for the patch. (LP: #1046210)
  * debian/patches/rebuild_menu_after_init.patch: use a g_idle_add rather than
    a 30 second timeout, so as to make sure the menu update can't run until
    foo_set_initial_state did. (LP: #1418260)
  * debian/patches/hide_virtual_devices.patch: don't show bridge, bond, team,
    or vlan devices: they were only recently added to NM and nm-applet, and
    given that they are usually not managed, showing them tends to be
    confusing since they are usually the result of underlying software which
    might not expect their state to get changed by NM. (LP: #1423819)
