vc-annotate is your friend, and shows that this was added in:

    add --no-line-editing to inferior-octave-startup-args so that TABs
    in source files are not interpreted as completion requests.

I don't use Octave myself, so I have no idea if this is still relevant.
If you know it isn't, I suggest you feel free to commit this.
Please bump the defcustom's :version tag (to 25.1) if you do,
and then close this bug. Thanks!
