@Mike comment #2:

Matlab r2012a has the same issue as Octave; comments need a delimiter ("word
boundary") around them. So yes, Octave's textscan is Matlab-compatible here,
but it's a little disappointing.

>> format compact
>> C = textscan (['hello#foo' char(10) 'world'], '%s', 'commentstyle', '#')
C =
    {2x1 cell}
>> C{1}
ans =
>> C = textscan (['hello #foo' char(10) 'world'], '%s', 'commentstyle', '#')
C =
    {2x1 cell}
>> C{1}
ans =

Octave's previous textscan.m was better in this respect; it could also
distinguish cuddling literals.
This was discussed with Lachlan in patch #8783 in a.o., comment #99 and
comment #5.
