That use of the "|" character to mean "or" means that your criterion is specified by means of a regular expression. For this to work, you need to have this facility enabled at Tools | Options... | LibreOffice | Calc | Calculate | Enable regular expressions in formulas. Without this, the function will match only the text interpreted as a single fourteen-character string.

I'm guessing, but do you have this option disabled?

I trust this helps.
