[Pdns-users] Wildcards for ipv6 PTR Records?

is it possible wo wildcard ipv6 PTR Records?
(PowerDNS 3.3.1 with PostgresSQL Backend)

I have the Problem, that i have several PTR Records in a ipv6 reverse-lookup zone.
These look like:
Zone name:

PTR Records:

I tried to do wildcard records like:


but it didn't work.

I also tried wildcard Records like:

Didn't work either.

The Reason why i want the Wildcards:
 i try to "rectify-zone w.w.w.w.x.x.x.x.y.y.y.y.z.z.z.z.ip6.arpa"
The Problem is, that i can't rectify these ipv6 reverse-lookup zones without having the upper record of the PTR Records. (for example: 
Powerdns wants to reate the following record:
Error: GSQLBackend unable to insert empty non-terminal rr 
in domain_id xxxx: PostgreSQL failed to execute command: ERROR:  null value in column "type" violates not-null constraint
for this PTR Record:

I know why it fails, that's not the point, that's why i wanted to create them manually.
(For explanation the error comes from:
STATEMENT:  insert into records (domain_id,name,type,auth) values ('xxxx','',null,true)
which failes because of the null type which powerdns tries to create.
