They are virtual ports.

phy-br-ex is the port attached to the vSwitch br-ex and phy-br-int is the port attached to the vSwitch br-int.

These are linked internally to allow traffic to flow from br-ex to br-int, or vice versa. The reason why you cannot see them is because these are taken to be the physical ports through where the traffic flows. Programs like tcpdump only allow you to capture traffic on a driver (eth0, for example).

Hope this helps.
