I don't see a metal-mercury-mode, but I noticed the same problem with
the default mercury-mode and stopped using it. Mercury comes with a
vim package that you can use, that has a few options you can set.
VSCode also has a Mercury extension. Neither of them let you
auto-reindent a region well, and they don't remove the burden of
indentation from you like a good Lisp mode will, but they should work
fine and not annoy you during normal code editing.
