The STOMP specification says nothing about wildcard subscriptions, or destinations, leaving the semantics of destinations, and even the link between SENDs to a destination and MESSAGEs returned as a result of SUBSCRIBEs entirely up to the server implementation.
The section in the RabbitMQ STOMP page on Topic Destinations refers to the topic exchange 'amq.topic' which, if you look in the RabbitMQ documentation, explains why your 'wildcard subscriptions against a topic' work. And that it is a feature. It also explains the rules for wildcards.
The fact that it doesn't "work" for queues is also a feature, and this should be discoverable by the same process.
I suspect this behaviour varies from STOMP implementation to STOMP implementation.
