This poked my curiosity, so it appears that while you can set a larger than 255 character regular expression in ldmd.conf, this pattern will later fail at the RPC level when it is attempted to be used.

When I set such a pattern for a ldmd.conf request, the upstream connection fails with

20160901T021846.586897Z upstream[20609] NOTE error.c:236:err_log() Upstream LDM didn't reply to FEEDME request; RPC: Can't encode arguments

upstream simply logs

20160901T023231.472245Z downstream[32130] NOTE ldmd.c:187:cleanup() Exiting
