Your interpretation of that variable sounds about right (fwiw, '.'
should work as well as '.*'). On the other hand when I view that message
with the default settings I don't see any images. You can duplicate my
experiment with

1) emacs -q
2) M-x package-initialize
3) M-x notmuch

I suspect the outcome depends on the setting of html viewer, but please
let us know what you discover.

All the best,
