I have always reused the bracket bolts on all my cars. I do occasionally replace the caliper guide pins. You can get the maintenance kit with new pins, boots and abutment clips for like 10 bucks on Rock Auto.
Normally I am the same way - but in general, most of those bracket bolts (in the past) haven't been TTY. I just did my brother's '01 Century hub/wheel bearing assembly today, and the caliper bracket bolts get torqued to 133 ft-lbs, but are not TTY and thus were something I reused. The Cruze's are TTY, but the GM service manual does not mention replacement (though all the online guides do seem to). That's where it got kind of odd...but I agree with you - on anything else with a caliper bracket, I've just reused them, since they're not specifically TTY.
