"-f ._filterlist" syntax

Hello, A GUI program uses rsync for network transfers. It is able to
load  filters from a file by putting a dot and underscore before it.
Example:mkdir 1 2; touch 1/a .empty; rsync -f ._empty 1/ 2/

Is the dot underscore specific to rsync or is it a general bash (or
similar?) feature to load arguments from a file? And is it documented
anywhere for rsync?
