See :help vifm-globs here:

* means any number of any characters (including slash) and can match an empty substring, with one exception: asterisk at the pattern beginning doesn't match dot in the first position.

So you might need to list the same pattern but with a leading dot, for example:

filetype *.ext,.*.ext ...
If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
