Not exactly: the svn:global-ignores only ignores files inside a working
copy, more specifically inside versioned folders.
Your files are inside an unversioned folder so they're not ignored by
the svn:global-ignores property.

If you want to globally ignore such files, you have to set those up in
the settings dialog under "global ignores" because only those work on
unversioned folders and files inside them.
