Do VCS Checkout Rules support wildcards?

In Version Control Settings, I can Edit checkout rules for a VCS root.

For exclusion rules (-:PathName), I would really like to use wildcards. Are these supported? If so, which ones?

For instance, instead of

Will that work? If not, are there any plans to add it?

Thank you!

Hi, it is supported. Please read for more details.

Failed to start build #1209 on AgentServer
Checkout rules shouldn't contain wildcards

So I've answered my own question - it's not supported. :(
