Wildcards are somewhat supported in the Exception policy. See these KB articles for each version regarding the support for wildcards:

Note: Wildcard variables such as * and ? are not supported for Known Risks, File, or Folder exceptions. The ? wildcard is supported for Extension exceptions. The Folder exceptions screen will accept * and ? but they will be treated as literal characters and not wildcard variables.
