​It ended up being pilot error. I made 2 mistakes that made my chain not

1. Didn't explicitly load the target_set plugin
2. Had a typo in the chain name

Here is my working config, for posterity:

LoadPlugin "match_regex" # we want to use this for our Matching
LoadPlugin "target_set" # This isn't builtin
<Chain "PreCache">
  <Rule> # Strip Host values from "statsd" metrics
    <Match regex>
      Plugin "^statsd$"
    <Target "set">
      Host "rf"
