Does cake flour have egg content in it?.. Ingredient doesn't say so but there was a note written which says "May contain egg, milk etc"...Making a vegan cake... What do u think?

I would not think so.  Cake flour is just flour with a low protein count.  The may contain ... usually pertains to the fact that it will have been handled in a place where these other products are and so may have become contaminated.  It is also a way manufacturers use to cover themselves from any liability.

AIf the package says "may contain" that means there is a significant chance of cross-contamination, so i would find a product from a different mfr. Same with "processed on shared equipment". If it says "processed in same facility" it could go either way, you would need to contact the mfr to see what kind of cleaning processes they use.
