So you can see in your [bonds] section an entry for the two atom numbers?

Previously you said the bond was strained after EM. pdb2gmx is not capable of straining a bond.
Be sure you are not looking at "bonds" generated via heuristics in some visualization program. If pdb2gmx is generating a disulfide bond, it will say so in the standard output, and you will be able to find it in the [bonds] section. Otherwise, there is no bond.
