Using echo or sysctl -w works for me, try upgrading your procps,
I have procps-3.3.12. Busybox sysctl fails though, so it would
seems this is an issue with busybox, go fix that.

With procps-3.3.12.:

Setting:

ergon:~ # cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth0.100/forwarding
1

ergon:~ # sysctl -w net.ipv4.conf.eth0/100.forwarding=0
net.ipv4.conf.eth0/100.forwarding = 0

ergon:~ # cat /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth0.100/forwarding
0

Querying:

ergon:~ # sysctl net.ipv4.conf.eth0/100.forwarding
net.ipv4.conf.eth0/100.forwarding = 0

With busybox:

ergon:~ # busybox-static sysctl net.ipv4.conf.eth0/100.forwarding
sysctl: error: 'net.ipv4.conf.eth0.100.forwarding' is an unknown key
