See attached the bug.

This is the correct result using regex.

If you want compare the results from patterns and regex please activate the option "Exclude extension" for regex or change the patterns:
File name: [n]
File extension: [e].pdf

In your example:
File name: test.test
Extension: ext

For the file name pattern "[n].NOT WORKING" is the new file name "test.test.NOT WORKING" and it is correctly. I do not see any bug.
"Exclude extension" in that case has no meaning.

What is your goal? How do you want rename the file?

Dear Stephan

if all you want to do is replace the extension, in your previous examples, you were using .pdf as an example, then all you have to do is type pdf (without a period/dot) in the field File extension: and then click on the Rename button.

The checkbox, exclude extension only pertains to the Seach and replace function.

For example if you have a file named test.test.pdf.pdf.pdf and you want to remove the two occurrences of .pdf before the extension. Then you would enter .pdf in the Search for: field and activate the Replace all occurrences checkbox as well as the Exclude extension checkbox.

File name: pertains to everything before the extension (to the left of the period/dot of the extension).

Best Regards

Thank you, sometimes I act before thinking and this was one of them times.

I thought it was a bug, but turns out it was me that was the bug.
