I have reported it as a bug in the bug tracker as it use to work under
3.2.4. The Matlab defintion of imread is
A = imread(filename, fmt)
where the text string fmt specifies the format of the file by its standard
file extension. For example, specify 'gif' for Graphics Interchange Format
files. To see a list of supported formats, with their file extensions, use
the imformats function. If imread cannot find a file named filename, it
looks for a file named filename.fmt. 

The definition of __magick_read__ hasn't changed since 3.2.4 but the
behavior has.
