This feature has rolled out for files (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/onedrive/use-group-policy#exclude-specific-kinds-of-files-from-being-uploaded) and we are looking to expanding it to folders in the future.

Seriously. You got all this user input and the best you manage to do is "Block syncing of specific file types", only by extension, on a global level (Admin Center). This may cover about 10% of the use cases for the feature requested here.
In our organization, the most common issue is that Microsoft Office temporary files (filename starting with"~$") get synced and cause conflicts. Most other cloud storage providers will ignore these files BY DEFAULT. OneDrive doesn't even provide an OPTION to ignore Microsoft's own temp files?
