You would normally export PackedScene as
export(PackedScene) var scene = preload('...')

But I want to categorize the variable, so I advance export it.

func _get_property_list() -> Array:
return [
    {
        name='scene',
        type=TYPE_OBJECT
    }
]

The thing is.. there is no TYPE_PACKEDSCENE. I tried to export as TYPE_OBJECT, It just exports all objects. Image

This also happens to every kind of export that TYPE_ doesn't have. Please, let me know if there is any better way for better categorizing export or it is coming for gdscript 4.0.

You need to use a property hint for that:

{
    name = "asdasd",
    type = TYPE_OBJECT,
    hint = PROPERTY_HINT_RESOURCE_TYPE,
    hint_string = "PackedScene"
}
