hardware architecture:

Description

If we have the same selection
Consider the following tags:

foo
foo|bar
foo|bar|baz
foobar

Expectation is:

If we select
foo% - this should return all tags above because % is wild card

If we select
"foo|bar%" - it should return
"foo|bar" and "foo|bar|baz"

If we select
"foo|bar|%" - it should return "foo|bar|baz"

Current behaviour
"foo|bar%" or "foo|bar|%" only returns "foo|bar"

Rationale
Longer tags like
"2017|Dec|Christmas"
"2017|Dec|NewYear"
cannot be easily selected like "2017|Dec|%"

For me - even built in tags like
darktable|format
will result in empty selection no images selected.

Please accept my apology...
The feature works as expected (producing the desired results). The user has to hit enter after entering the string containing "%" character.
