You are mixing these up....

Domain sets are only interested in FQDNs or parts of an FQDN

hotmail.com
*.hotmail.com
www.hotmail.com
www.hotmail.*

Anything that has a /something after it is NOT an FQDN but a url and these need to go into URL sets.

www.hotmail.com/thispage
www.hotmail.co.uk/thatpage/*

To block abc.com would require a domain set with two entries:
abc.com
*.abc.com

No - it doesn't do the same.

As above, you choose based on the requirement. Your example cited blocking abc.com completely so i have responded with:

To block abc.com would require a domain set with two entries:
abc.com
*.abc.com
