just upgrade to Proxmox VE 6.x, it has smartmontools 7:

# apt show smartmontools
Package: smartmontools
Version: 7.0-pve2

For now we have no plans to backport it to 5.4.

You could re-build it yourself from our git[0] if you really cannot upgrade
and ain't scared from installing some dev packages and executing some `make` :)

# git clone git://git.proxmox.com/git/smartmontools.git
# cd smartmontools
# make submodule
# make deb
