This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Table of Contents Macro

I tried mimicking your setup and was able to exclude the Table of Content Zones using the *Exclude Headings* function in the Table of Contents macro. This part may be a bit confusing as the parameter takes regular expressions to find matches and exclude them.
One useful tool to make sure the regular expression you created catches the sections you want is the following: http://www.regexpal.com/ This should let you test your regular expressions to make sure they are valid.
As an example, I created some Table of Content Zones with the names ZONE and SECTION respectively. I then created a simple regular expression to capture both of the words and added it to the Exclude parameter:
This should exclude any words in the regex statement above from the Table of Contents macro and you should be able to add more complex filters to the expression to come up with any patterns you like. The site I provided above has some cheat sheets on how to come up with valid regular expressions and should help if the simple command above does not work for you (in your case you should be able to edit the command above to fit your zone names).
