Nope. None of the filter options will allow you to filter against OU because it's not an attribute of the user. All attributes which do hold that (such as distinguishedName and canonicalName) do not allow wild card filtering (meaning you can't target the parent OU of a user).

the only way to get it is to insert a custom attribute to the user based

For example Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "OU=BLOCK,DC=ABC,DC=Lock" | Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute1 "BlockDDL"

Then you create the DDL filter to exclude CustomAttribute1  -notlike (-ne) "BlockDDL"  (it can be any CustomAttribute )

This is not ideal but kind of achieve what you want

can I set it up and just skip a OU entirely?  or this can not be done as well because I would like to not have to manage this on a daily bases

No because there is nothing that will let you filter out an OU, no attribute holds a user (or other AD objects) parent OU.

Your only choice is to populate some other attribute with something you can filter on and maintain that.
