Yes, they are created by udev. I had the same problem as yours but my
description of the problem was slightly different from yours: links
/dev/dvd to /dev/sr0 were created at boot time but erased as soon as I
put a cd|dvd in the drive. So I could use the drive only once!

The missing file was: /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules

Have you this file? (maybe with another number than 70)?
