Thank you very much for your help.
I was unaware of argument passing through string scalar when passing a matrix with st_matrix.
This is very helpful information.

Here is a silly example. More general advise can be found
here: -help m1_ado-

*-------------- begin example ------------
mata: mata clear
sysuse auto, clear

void foo(string scalar b) {
        bb =st_matrix(b)
        bb = 2:*bb
        st_matrix("b", bb)

program drop _all
program define silly, rclass
        reg mpg foreign
        matrix b = e(b)
        mata: foo("b")
        return scalar b1 = el(b,1,1)
        return scalar b2 = el(b,1,2)
bootstrap b1=r(b1) b2=r(b2), reps(100): silly
*-------------- end example -----------------
