Percent Encoding Asterisk #3488
This was also brought up a while ago in a SO post, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/39771140/should-httpurl-builder-addpathsegment-2a-encode-an-asterisk
Seems like Section 2.2 of RFC 3986 has the answer, but I'm not quite sure which answer it's indicating.
That same section states that * is a reserved character, although I'm not sure how to interpret "unless these characters are specifically allowed by the URI scheme to represent data in that component"
