Yes, you need to load the package as well:

pkg load windows

(Sorry for forgetting to tell you.)

BTW there are ways to do that automatically:

during installation:
pkg install -forge -auto windows

later on:
pkg rebuild -auto windows
 (optionally followed by pkg load windows if it didn't load yet).

That's because that's just the script directory.
There's also a directory with compiled (binary) modules for those packages
that contain binary files. It's in your case expected to be in

Hint: It appears it may help you to read up a little bit on Octave. There's
a documentation tab in the GUI and some entries in the Start Menu. 
Search for "Packages" (ch. 38).
