Issue:
Here is an observation.   When you are assigning an owner to a resource, sometimes a period is appended and sometimes is it NOT.    Here are a few examples.    Does it work the same way?  
 
No PERIOD:
TSS ADD(<owningacid>) DSN(CEA)
TSS ADD(<owningacid>) APPL(IZUDFLT)
TSS ADD(<owningacid>) IBMFAC(MVSADMIN)
 
Includes the PERIOD:
TSS ADD(<owneracid>) OPERCMDS(MVS.)
TSS ADD(<owningacid>) DSN(CFZSRV.)
TSS ADD(<owningacid>) IBMFAC(BBG.)
TSS ADDTO(<owningacid>) PTKTDATA(IRRPTAUTH.)
Resolution:
The characters between the parenthesis is prefix.
 
Example:
 
TSS ADD(<owningacid>) DSN(CEA)
 
All datasets that start with CEA are now owned or defined to TSS
 
So dataset CEA.ABCD, CEA.EFGH and CEA.IJK.LMNOP are now  owned/defined to CA Top Secret.
TSS ADD(<owningacid>) DSN(CEA.)
 
Mean all datasets that start with CEA. is owned/defined to CA Top Secret.
 
So dataset CEA.ABCD, CEA.EFGH and CEA..IJK.LMNOP is now owned /defined to CA Top Secret.
 
BUT dataset CEABCDEF.ABCD, CEAJOE.EFJ and CEADAWN.GHJK is NOT included because there is no period after CEA.
