$validate function on macos

Trying to use the $validate function on macos, doesn't seem to be evaluated and simply adds $validate( to the file path.

Is it supported, and if so how can I get it to work like on Windows?

The configuration setting Replace invalid NTFS characters at Preferences → General → Filenames might be what you're looking for.

If enabled, characters that are not allowed in Windows NTFS filenames are automatically replaced by an underscore _ on field lookup. The following characters are replaced: \ : / * ? < > | ".

Enabling the automatic replacement also prevents folder creation when using the converter Tag - Filename with fields that contain the forward slash character /.
