Is tun(4) a cloning device?

From reading the source, net/if_tun.c, I get the impression that tun is
a cloning device. Like tap. (The word clone appears several times)

But for tap this is mentioned in the manual, and MAKEDEV creates a
/dev/tap (next to /dev/tap[0-3]). But not for tun, when it  seems it
could be.

Any particular reason for this? If they were both cloning it would
remove a nagging inconsistency and be much nicer for virtual machine
