Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.2).

Change log:
Relax validation of URLs in BB code content as users may submit URLs that are missing URL encoding in some scenarios.
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
