The log message says:

    Adds the '@' pattern modifier to limit matches to known aliases.
    Example: ~f joe matches messages from joe. @~f joe matches messages from
    any joe who is defined as an alias.

And the docs (the website isn't updated yet), say:

    You can restrict address pattern matching to aliases that you have
    defined with the "@" modifier.  This example matches messages whose
    recipients are all from Germany, and who are known to your alias

    ^@~C \.de$

    To match any defined alias, use a regular expression that matches
    any string.  This example matches messages whose senders are known

    @~f .

Hope this helps,
    Rich / FlatCap
