Bitbucket's branch permissions will first find all matching branch permission rules, then check if for any of those rules an exemption exists for the user attempting the action.
If no exemptions exist, the user is prevented from carrying out the action.

For example if you have a rule preventing all writes to all branches for everyone, and another rule preventing all writes for the pattern 'bugfix/*' with the user 'admin' exempt, 'admin' could write to all branches and tags that start with 'bugfix' (and nothing else).
