I can give you an example here:

bash# vi compgen-example.sh
_compgen_foo()
{
    local cmd=$1 cur=$2 pre=$3

    if [[ $cur = % ]]; then
        COMPREPLY[0]='it-works'
    fi
}

complete -F _compgen_foo foo
bash# source compgen-example.sh
bash# foo %<TAB>    <-- Press TAB here
bash# foo it-works    <-- `%' will be expanded like this
