One explanation I have heard is - the karma - good or bad, of a jnani does not have any locus to accumulate as sanchita karma for future enjoyment/suffering.
As such karma cannot be nullified at a samaShThi level, it will attach to the suhRts and dveshis accordingly. 
I think this is more a logical explanation and I have not heard of any pramana for the above.
