On RDO Mittaka by default packstack installs external OVS bridge , thus openvswitch gets installed.
However, on Ubuntu ( and CentOS 7.2) external Linux Bridge is recommended to use, thus openvswitch might be not needed. See
I work always on RDO Openstack releases , so don't have hands on experience with Ubuntu deployments.
Finally, I believe that it depends on what kind of external bridging you intend to use. See also
