These commands were introduced in Matlab 4.x.  John Campbell and I
wrote Octave's implementation before I had ever seen or heard of
Matlab 4, so it was hard to be compatible.  :-)

I agree that they should work the same, at least optionally, so that 
existing code won't break, and so that Octave can handle more Matlab
code without modification.  I am going to be working on that code soon
(for some other reasons), so maybe I'll be able to work on
compatibility too.
