The algorithm used by various camera companies is much better than the one in Lightroom, but why is that?

That's a question that no one here can answer ... why does the algorithm perform that way? No one here programmed Lightroom Classic, no one here designed Lightroom Classic, no one here sets the priorities for Lightroom Classic.

Could Adobe do better? Sure. Do they put effort into it? I have no idea.

But I think it is true that when it comes to color rendition, the camera manufacturer's software generally performs better than Lightroom Classic/ACR. The camera manufacturer's can tailor their software to produce "better" colors because they know the guts of the hardware and software and are able to make them work together. Adobe doesn't have that luxury.
