I suggest to change/add the docstring accordingly, because the new
behavior is a radical change.

I could provide a 'patch' for that[1]

That's great! 

, but not sure about the structure of
that patch

(which git diff option to use

- You first need to rebase your local git area to emacs-25 as you are planning to provide just a documentation patch, (otherwise you would rebase to the master branch). 
- Then git commit the changes in your local area. 
- http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs.git/plain/CONTRIBUTE has instructions on the style of writing commit logs. 
- Use git format_patch HEAD~1 to create patch for that last commit. 

, to whom to send that patch

- You use the same M-x report-emacs-bug to describe the problem you are solving along with the inline pasted patch you just created. 


While you are at it, you can even initiate the process to finish the copyright paperwork if you'd like to contribute more in future (why not! :)); even though you don't need that right now for 3 lines of documentation patch. 

I see that you heavily contribute to matlab-mode.el. Thanks for maintaining that! And as Stefan Monnier mentioned in an earlier email thread, that could possibly be integrated into octave-mode.el piece by piece and be part of Emacs. 

Hope this helps.
