What is a special character?

Unicode blocks:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_block

Emoticons:
regex:[\x{1F600}-\x{1F64F}]

Miscellaneous Symbols and Pictographs:
regex:[\x{1F300}-\x{1F5ff}]

The first regex works with Everything.
The second regex does not find anything, but OK.

Otherwise, both regexes do not work in another MasterSeeker application:
Error Exception: - Not enough hexadecimal digits.
It does not work for the regular expression engine in the MasterSeeker program
