I thought "pkg updating" would alert me about python...?

The behavior of this is strange.
I have the following python* in my environment.
python, python27, python3, python37 and python38

AFFECTS: users of python : not match
AFFECTS: users of pytho? : match
AFFECTS: users of python3 : not match
AFFECTS: users of python* : match
AFFECTS: users of python3[7] : match

package names are also comparable.
Does it not pattern match if the pattern match symbol ?, [] or * is not included?
