Use ^ for absolute input paths?


I recently read about the filebeat filestream input. On prospector.scanner.include_files, there is an example saying you should use ^ in patterns if they're an absolute path. Does this transfer to the input paths aswell, so that I should use '^/var/log/application/*.log' for example? I guess the reasoning behind this is better performance, isn't it?
