Does dnf support wildcards like yum did?

In olden times, I could use wildcards with yum, like so:

yum list gimp*

And I'd get a nice long list of all the packages that started with gimp. I've noticed that doesn't work with dnf. Is there some other syntax I need to use or do wildcards just not work anymore?

For example

dnf list gimp*
Error: No matching Packages to list

dnf list gim*
Error: No matching Packages to list

But I know the packages are there because:

dnf list gimp
Available Packages
gimp.x86_64 2:2.8.22-2.fc26 fedora

dnf list gimp-devel
Available Packages
gimp-devel.x86_64 2:2.8.22-2.fc26 fedora
