rule patterns

OK this is definitely the last question! :)

rules/README example patterns:

        *        # Any user at 1 domain
        *@*          # Any user at any sub-domain of ""   # Any hostname        # Any domain name
        host:mail*  # Any hostname or domain name with wildcards

Shouldn't the first host: example say "a single hostname"?  And the 2nd
say "a single domain name"?  Likewise the 3rd example.

Is * equivalent to  It would seem so although
since "host:" isn't really defined I'm not 100% sure it means the part
after the "@" in the email address being tested.  (only 99.9% sure)

But really what I wanted to get to is that bounce.rules has:

#From:        yes

which doesn't match any of the example patterns in README.  Is bounce.rules
in error?
