Tristan and Fred would have to verify this, but from what I've seen no, people who use rebar and erlang.mk do not do relups.
In my experience (having only seen three projects that were serious about using relups instead of restarts) projects that do relups use systools and relup. And the tooling isn't actually bad, it is just more complex because very few conveniences have been built into them (partly because "reasonable default" is a lot harder to pin down, and partly because, I think, most people who figure out reltool once have solved it for the life of their project, and forget that it was a PITA to straighten out initially).
