The two functions in the bridge module that handle NETDEV_CHANGE are br_vlan_port_event  and br_vlan_bridge_event. I've installed probes for both, and when I'm changing flags using "sudo ip link set vlan10 type vlan bridge_binding on", I don't see any of those functions getting called, although I do see vlan_dev_change_flags getting called. I think there may be a bug in core/dev.c:__dev_notify_flags.

You can't expect to see br_vlan_bridge_event() called because the notification
target device is vlan10 and not the bridge. See br_device_event():
...
        if (netif_is_bridge_master(dev)) {
                err = br_vlan_bridge_event(dev, event, ptr);
                if (err)
                        return notifier_from_errno(err);
...


Try probing for br_device_event(), you'll see it gets called every time you change the flag.
