Follow-up Comment #3, bug #49385 (project octave):

Confirmed, I get the same when I run the following in Octave:

>> system ("/bin/bash -c \"echo -ne '\\e[3mhello world\\e[23m'\"");
hello worldundecodable token: \001b(hex)[3m
undecodable token: \001b(hex)[23m

So this suggests there is something in the environment or in the less program
that is printing the "standout" and "no standout" ANSI terminal escape
sequences, but the Octave qterminal does not know how to interpret them.

Best answer here would be to disable these escape sequences (which is probably
what the Arch wiki page is doing opaquely).
