This is likely the behavior because Octave simply relies on the
standard system utilities to do the decompression and unpacking. The
gzip command deletes its input file by default, while the unzip
command does not.

If you believe this inconsistency is an error, or preferably have
access to Matlab and can show what the correct behavior should be,
please report a bug:
