It may or may not;  depends on what extensions/plugins are activated in
your SIEVE.  Is the above documented syntax from somewhere?

Horde's Ingo application uses regular expressions to match dates in
order to implement vacation start/end.  I believe date matching in SIEVE
is a relatively recent thing, and I am not sure to what level it is
implemented [anywhere].
