You actually use this as an example in the instructions, although for the general "do not overwrite" collections field, not the individual column exclusion field.
Always good to put an example in that doesn't work

You need to put a "\" before the "[" and the "]" since the brackets are special regex pattern characters, so use "\[.*\]".

I've updated the examples, added a note on patterns, and a tooltip in the GUI about it. Patterns can be confusing - but to get their benefit also means some confusion.
