It's not possible to create a user through Users and Privileges -> Add Account with the Limit to Hosts Matching like the string:


It shows the error:

"Invalid host specification

The host specification "my-host-name-%%.my.domain.name.example.com " is not valid. Please correct it and try again.

Workbench allows to create a user only with '%' Host Matching.
Interesting that it doubles "%" in the error message.

How to repeat:
Install MySQL Workbench 8.0.33 to Mac and try to create a mysql user in a database through 
Users and Privileges -> Add Account with these:

Login Name: any
Limit to Hosts Matching: my-host-name-%.my.domain.name.example.com (use any string which includes %)
Password: any
