As you saw my other message, this should be answered already, but
consider this additional perspective on globs:

The glob is  both *less* restrictive and more restrictive, it accepts
any valid unicode character.

To be more exact, it's almost completely orthogonal to the one in makepkg.

makepkg only accepts .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, .tar.xz, .tar.lzo, .tar.lrz, and
.tar.Z and most of those fail to match against a two-char compression type.

dbscripts accepts .pkg.tar.💩z which incidentally is what I think of
cherry-picking xz and gz as supported methods.

AFAIK there should not be any non-xz packages in the official repos, I
can verify that there are currently none, and I'm not sure why we should
support it anyway (but if we do, we should do it properly).
