Webpage as Negative Campaign Criteria, created in API, where to find in UI

We want to exclude showing display network ads on a particular website, lets say  I'm creating a negative campaign criterion with a website criteria, who's parameter operand is URL, and argument is   They are created successfully and I get an Id back, as well I can see in the campaign history in the web UI that the website exclusion was created.
However, I can't for the life of me see the setting (under settings, display network->placements, etc).  Do these campaign exclusions show up in the UI??   Is there a way to verify that this exclusion is effective?  
This is specifically for display network campaigns.  I posted in the API forum here,!topic/adwords-api/Z_3_hBiRCtM, but haven't gotten an answer about display network campaigns.   Shwetha from Adwords API team provided some help, but for search and dynamic search campaigns, not display network.

Hi @Matthew W


You can exclude placements from specific ad groups and campaigns from the Display Network tab.


1. Go to your Display Network tab and click + Targeting

2. Select an ad group.
Click either the “Add ad group exclusions” or “Add campaign exclusions” drop-down menu and select “Placements."
3. Type a placement in the box (example: by entering one placement per line. (You can exclude up to 10,000 placements per campaign.)
