Criteria based sharing rules are very strict in what they can and can't use in their rule conditions. One of the restrictions is that you may not use values in other related records, such as look relationships.

You ask "why" and only PM really knows. But reading these two whitepapers will help you understand the architecture of the sharing model which might point you to some of the possible reasons for why this compromise has been made in criteria based sharing rules:

Hi Anvesh, 

 

The lookup field is actually not part of the Record but its references the Other Object hence it is not visible.
