Yes, parentheses and brackets should be displayed in the same format as the surround text. However, If text is enclosed, you should keep original format.

For example,

The letter stated that my check had been 'received [sic] with thanks.'
This example is a direct quotation from http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/16/ch06/ch06_sec005.html
