למה לא מלא?

Because מלא is full and ממולא is filled. There could be a difference if you wanted to say that the room is being filled, using "filled" as a verb rather than an adjective. In the same way, מלא can only be the adjective, ממולא can mean either adjective (ממולא שוקולד) or passive verb (אי אפשר להיכנס עכשיו לחדר, הוא ממולא ממתקים).
