This is half the problem, but the OpenVPN init script probably shouldn't have "need net" in its depend() function to begin with. It runs fine with only the loopback interface up. You could try to file a bug for that with https://github.com/OpenRC/openrc/blob/master/service-script-guide.md as a reference. There's a section titled "Be wary of 'need net' dependencies" that covers the issue.
