I'm not 100% sure of why this is happening, but I believe that the
rule to create /dev/net/tun in 50-udev.rules is overriding the one you
created. Did you try to create it as 99-local.rules? What about
creating a device with another name so that they do not conflict?

But in general I agree with you that udev is a little tricky and
documentation could be improved...
