When adding a payment, debit and credit account code in GL distributions includes asterisk

When using legacy GL, account numbers can be mapped with an asterisk (*) to represent account type.  The asterisk is supposed to map to the appropriate debit/credit accounts. For example, an event mapped with account codes 10-*-0 should appear in a payment as 10-1-0 (cash debit) and 10-2-0 (cash credit) but for Jews for Jesus, they appear as 10-*-0 for both credit and debit.
This was a client specific issue relating to customizations.  

It appears they have custom GL logic that replaces %, not *.  Using a % in place of the * in this scenario seems to work correctly.
