I think, based on events in the MU, that their memory isn't as strong as those on SM. In the MU other things besides the Barraki were also mostly forgotten, becoming legends instead of recorded history. It also might be in part due to any mention of the League being expunged from almost every single historical document.
I think you have multiple generations living alongside each other in both cases.

Well, not a complete answer, but here goes nothin'.
Keep in mind the mindwipe of the Metru/Mata Nui Matoran. They're the ones that the story is most focused around, so things are 'remembered' from their perspective, and they can't remember that time period. We haven't really gotten a huge chance to see if the general populace of most other locations has also forgotten that time.

It seems like things become legends among Matoran pretty quickly. They probably have less capacity for long term memory over thousands of years, unlike the SMians.

Indeed, the Barakii never entered Metru Nui, also they did not do anything quite memorable, while the Elemental lords where respondible for the destruction of a whole planet, by so if the Bara Magmans lookn at their planet they'll remember the Lords, while in metru nui, was nothing wich reminded them of their reign so their ruling bacame a legend.

Didn't at least the Mahri Nui Matoran get a mindwipe too? Who really have we seen focused on that could give us any sense one way or another of whether they recall the Barraki? The Order? Besides, weren't the Barraki changed? With the possible exception of Ehlek?
As far as I know, the average Matoran and older Toa (though not many Toa are left) probably does remember them, but wouldn't necessarily connect them with these sea people if they met them. Even Ehlek; since he was water-breathing, it's possible they never saw him. Come to think of it, would the average person have seen the Barraki anyways? Or even known what they look like?
Basically, the MU story seems to have given us very little frame of reference for events so ancient being remembered.
However, there are some clues, like Teridax's memories from his early life, of Helryx's, or even Tahu (I think he was the one that remembered, yeah?).

Certainly they're probably not recognisable if people did remember them anymore, but I also think there's an element that history is as recent as its legacy. Spherus Magna was basically in recovery from the core war until Mata Nui fixed the planet, whereas the MU probably lost most signs of the Barraki's reign pretty quickly.
