Yes and no, but I guess that in your case it's a no, but.
You cannot have AND and OR in expressions themselves, unless you use
regular expressions that can match like OR ("(a|b)"). Similarly,
prioritizing using parenthesis is not possible. You can define multiple
expressions in a filter rule, logically chained with AND or OR, but not
mix those AND and OR operators; you can define multiple rules, then
chaining of all this (logical flow), including stop-actions, allows to
match in a complex manner anyway.
