A better analogy might be with cellulose insulation; they are both 
organic .  As such, they are subject to decay, where inorganics 
(fiberglass and rockwool) are not.
Presumably, the de-activation treatment prevents reactivation of the 
mold by exposure to water but there are other molds which will digest molds.

It seems likely that the same precautions and limitations for cellulose 
may apply to mycelium insulation.
