I *guess*, somewhat based on reading MariaDB code, it is because of data
structure differences and the fact indexing is tightly coupled MySQL engine
used in an instance.
AFAIK, Boost.Geometry-enabled MySQL will be released along its source code,
then it will be easier to analyse and test it.
I'm personally looking forward to checking it and trying it out.
