Actually, it does:

[08:55:05][root at sunset root]# cat /etc/redhat-release 
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 3 (Taroon Update 2)
[08:55:14][root at sunset root]# grep  -n ifup /etc/init.d/network 
73:     action $"Bringing up loopback interface: " ./ifup ifcfg-lo
137:            action $"Bringing up interface $i: " ./ifup $i boot
148:            action $"Bringing up interface $i: " ./ifup $i boot
