Several sections of the manual show the <files> tag supports a semi-colon delimited list of files:

<files>${installdir}/admin;${installdir}/admin/*</files>

Another section shows a list with one file per line:

<files>${installdir}/*~
${installdir}/*/*~
${installdir}/*/*/*~
${installdir}/*/*/*/*~</files>

Is one method preferred over the other or limited in any way?

No, both formats are equally valid. You can even mix them. The advantage of using the line break separated list of patterns is that it is more readable for big lists of files.
