(info "(emacs) Regexps")

see the above info node. ;-) { and the final } are just literal characters,
[...] describes a set of alternatives. ^ negates such a set, so that [^}]
matches any character other than }.

note that {[^}]*} could also have been written as {.*?} (which IHMO is a bit
clearer and easier to read).
