This is likely because Adafruit IO uses a non-traditional MQTT "topic" format:

Typically MQTT topics are expected to look like:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
username/topic/topicName


Adafruit IO "feeds" are modified topics which look like:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
username/feeds/feedName


You may need to file an issue on the SmartHome firmware repository or contact the developer directly to support our feed/topic formatting. Feel free to include a link to this topic.
