procd doesn't parse those rules when in openwrt; it's ModemManager
itself the one doing that.

The fix in the udev rule is to avoid treating the pattern as a regex
while it really is a shell globbing pattern. For non-openwrt
distributions that was not an issue, the matches were still happening
even if the pattern given was not exactly what we thought. For openwrt
this was an issue, because the changes done in the custom udev parsing
rules during 1.18.4 couldn't handle the pattern properly. So, I just
simplified the udev rule pattern, which still will work when using the
real udev, but which also makes it work properly with the custom udev
parsing logic.
