In MSMS 3.5.0, are file filtering configurations cumulative?

I'm about to do a pilot and have some questions for MSMS 3.5.0.

Under Policy Manager/ On Access/ AntiVirus Scanner/ File Filtering rules, if I configure it to block a file (i.e. 'booboo' under 'filename filtering', and then also configure the rule to block a whole category under 'file category filtering', (i.e. block all Excel), are these configurations cumulative? In other words, would that configuration block all instances of booboo to include booboo.xls, booboo.xlsx, etc?
