objectRepresentationSplitter wildcards / setting preferred labels from filename

a couple of objectRepresentationSplitter questions. any help is greatly appreciated. more than happy to do this another way if i'm going down the wrong path entirely

First question: Is it possible to use wildcards to import images from a folder specified in a data source with many differently named images inside? tried using regular expression wildcards but couldn't figure out how to get it to work...So far the basic objectRepresentationSplitter parameters I am imagining are something like

"mediaPrefix": "^2/",
"attributes": {
"media": "[WILDCARD?]"

Second question: Is it possible for each objectRepresentation to have the preferred label set from the filename during this same import? I think the element is ? but not sure how/if possible to set this in the refinery parameters.

Background info:

Creating an import mapping that is working decently for most columns. Having trouble with the object representation column. To simplify here is a two column example of what we're working with:

Column 1 contains individual object names. Column 2 contains one corresponding directory name, for the directory containing relevant jpgs, for each entry. The folders are mainly consistent (have exaggerated the differences for this example) but the images have an inconsistent naming scheme.

Example Spreadsheet:

Object 1 Name | Object 1 Images Folder
Object 2 Name | 1999 Object 2 Folder
Object 3 Name | Some Folder for Object 3

Example Directory Tree:

Object 1 Images Folder/
01 One Test.jpg
02 Test One2.jpg
03 Another Testing1 Picture.jpg

1999 Object 2 Folder/
01 Two2 Test.jpg
02 2Test Two.jpg
03 Another2 Testing Picture.jpg

Some Folder for Object 3/
01 Test Three.jpg
02 Test 3Three.jpg
03 Another Testing Picture3.jpg
