[OS X TeX] Lucidabr and fontenc

I have just switched over to a Mac and have a question about the Lucida 
Bright fonts. I have installed the fonts, run texhash and run the 
following commands as suggested in a post I found in the archives for 
this list.

sudo updmap --enable Map lucidabr-k.map
sudo updmap --enable Map lumath-k.map

Everything works fine. However, I have to include the line


in order for the fonts to work. If I don't \usepackage{lucidabr} does 
not work. It does not produce an error, but the output is in computer 
modern. If I use the older \usepackage{lucidbry} command then I do not 
need to use the fontenc package. I have used the fonts for a number of 
years on both Linux and Windows and have never had to use fontenc before.

So I am curious about this difference. Is this standard behaviour for 
LaTeX on Macs? Or does it point to some mistake I've made when 
installing the fonts that is likely to give me grief later on?

Thanks for your help.
