As I understand it wave functions of matter are distributed across space. Does that include within an event horizon of a black hole?

Wavefunctions are often interpreted as abstract entities in very high dimensional Hilbert spaces, not something concrete spread around the universe. In this the function is defined over all spatial degrees of freedom. The black hole just serves to constrain the time evolution of the wavefunction by strongly reducing the probability of some paths.

Unless you are a fan of one of the QM interpretations with a real wavefunction?
