Thanks for looking that up.

No, if I read that right it's talking about XML (implying HTML also)
output. Within Octave itself, the plaintext output will have single
quotes (U+0027) which is what I see in Debian. And I can confirm that
the HTML output uses the &lsquo; and &rsquo; characters.

It wouldn't be a code change in Octave, and I don't know what the policy
has been for updating helper programs in the Windows bundle for point
releases (actually this will be the first one!).

I've reported this as bug #46637.
