Not quite. But what you can do is make a ruleset produce the name of the
filename.rules.conf file. So create:
/etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.staff.conf containing
allow   .       -       -
and /etc/MailScanner/rules/filename.rules.rules containing
From:   user1@* /etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.staff.conf
From:   user2@* /etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.staff.conf
FromOrTo:       default /etc/MailScanner/filename.rules.conf
