Follow-up Comment #6, bug #41202 (project octave):

The issue is the same one identified earlier that 'echo on' turns on echoing
for scripts at all levels, not just toplevel scripts.  In this case, when a
directory is added to the path one of the hooks that is done is to run the
PKG_ADD script for the directory.  That is the source of all the screen
output.  I tested this by setting the path to something which has no PKG_ADD
scripts (/home) and there is no output.

echo on
x = path ();
path ("/home");  # no weird output
path (x);  # lots of output
