>like that it considers requests to subdomains third-party)

As it should. Sometimes subdomains are third party. If I whitelist example.org I do not want any subdomains to be whitelisted without be explicitely whitelisting *.example.org as a wildcard or any specific subdomains.

Proof of concept: I constantly host what I could consider 3rd party resources on subdomains for clients. eg: billing.example.com where billing. isn't owned or operated by example.com and could be running who knows what in terms of Javascript and Ads that I may or may not trust without whitelisting billing.example.com. The most common of these are specific marketing/tracking forms that they wish to run through some third party marketing agency and not our in-house tracking systems.
