It depends but you do have a point.
That will depend on the composition of sugars in the wort. Brett will eat dextrinous wort that sacch won't. If you mash for medium to med-high body, you could get decent brett character from finishing with brett with no added sugar.
Otherwise, adding maltodextrin like emjay said will feed it.
