Cloud sync sftp task excludes doesn't work

I'm trying to use a cloud sync sftp task to take backup of an entire server. So I set it to backup / on the remote server and then I added some excludes, for example "/dev", but the excludes didn't work. I tried instead to exclude "dev/" which seem to work but I'm mot sure if that could affect other directories that include dev in their names but isn't located in /dev.

From what I understand adding "/dev" to the exclude list should work but maybe I misunderstood. Or do I need to add something more in the exclude field other than "/dev" (without quote)?
