What version of Matlab does this?

If Matlab *does* behave this way, I think it is a bug in Matlab, not
Octave, because it leads to an ambiguity depending on the sizes of the
index vectors.

I think what you want to write is

i = find (x <= 0.5);
s(i) = 0.5;

which should work in a compatible way if do_fortran_indexing is set to
a non-zero value.
