can I use capturing groups in InfluxDB's regexes, to put something I can use later in the query or create a virtual/temporary field or tag based on what gets captured?

I've got some data that's in kind of a bad format; some things are stored in the name

I'd like to pull that stuff out so that I can use it to clean up some output in Grafana

it does appear to accept named capturing groups in the regex themselves, but idk if it actually does anything with them
