Oh, so you are asking about the GUI settings, not the standard startup

The GUI only loads and stores its preferences in one place, which is
based on the user's home directory location.

A future version of Octave might use the Qt "AppConfigLocation" storage
path, which looks like it allows settings to be read from a system-wide
location. But there is no way to point the per-user configuration
elsewhere at the moment.
