Okay, great!  This isn't mentioned in the documentation:

compress_extension=%s  Support adding specified extension, so that f2fs can enable
                       compression on those corresponding files, e.g. if all files
                       with '.ext' has high compression rate, we can set the '.ext'
                       on compression extension list and enable compression on
                       these file by default rather than to enable it via ioctl.
                       For other files, we can still enable compression via ioctl.
