One note:

      These strings are sorted internally from longest to shortest,
      allowing the most specific string to be matched first.

It's not correct. Please, correct my spell:

      nginx finds the longest match to conventional string.
      These strings are sorted internally in lexical order,
      so the search is terminstaed just when URI became
      lexically more than a string.

Of course, if your configurations for these locations are equal, you
may use one big regex.
