I extend Konstantin's response with references to protocols:

Most XMPP clients treat the MUC room in the roster as a bookmark as defined in
and they store that bookmark in Private XML storage as defined in
All this is unrelated to the roster as defined in RFC 3921.
Consequently, mod_shared_roster can't help you.

Regarding possible alternatives:

You want (for each registered account) to add a bookmark to his
private XML storage. For this you can install mod_admin_extra and call
the ejabberd command private_set.
