I've a number of functioning software bridges, none of which are in
promiscuous mode.

Looking at /usr/share/doc/initscripts-8.45.30/sysconfig.txt, there used
to be PROMISC=yes|no option but its now marked as "No longer supported"

Perhaps newer bridge code no longer needs it and your documentation is
now out of date?
