We consider it as a feature request, because Special Slots were initially designed to work in this way - as you noticed, appointments have a RecurrenceRule property
which contains the RecurrencePattern and the exceptions associated with the current rule. Slots, on the other hand, have directly the RecurrencePattern
property, that's why they do not support exception occurrences.
I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.
