It appears deja-dup does not accept regular expressions when adding entries via dconf-editor to org.gnome.DejaDup.exclude-list. Is there a solution to allow for regex matching of paths for this parameter?

No, regular expressions aren't supported by deja-dup and there is no workaround currently. You'll need to specify the folders explicitly.
