Maybe not, but they work fine with static device nodes (gasp!).
I don't think the script to create them is packaged, but it's in the
source for dvb-utils IIRC, called MAKEDEV.napi or similar.

I suppose static /dev is unfashionable yet surprisingly functional.
I never did see a reason to try devfs.
