I'm afraid that's not correct. As per the UNIX Filesystem Hierarchy
Standard version 2.3, /media is officially the parent directory for
mountpoints for removable storage devices such as CD, DVD, BluRay, USB
sticks, memory cards, et al.

/mnt is either a mountpoint or a parent directory to other mountpoints
intended for non-removable storage media which are not part of the
normal filesystem hierarchy, such as for instance a partition native to
another GNU/Linux distribution, or a Microsoft Windows partition, or
even a network share which isn't mounted anywhere in the local hierarchy
- as e.g. would be the case with an NFS-mounted /usr or /home - but
rather as in the case of an NFS-mounted volume for making backups.
exfat is a proprietary Microsoft extension to vfat to allow for a FAT-
like filesystem - as I understand it, even at the 64-bit level - on
larger partitions. Given that it's proprietary, its specifications may
not (yet) be known to the Linux kernel developers, so I don't know
whether this filesystem is supported yet in GNU/Linux via FUSE.
