Follow-up Comment #3, bug #56856 (project octave):

Ok, I see the new example does what you describe.

I also think that this example agrees with the Matlab documentation.
Specifically, on this page
<https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_oop/indexed-assignment.html>, it

> If A does not exist before you execute the assignment statement, then MATLAB
initializes the five array elements that come before A(2,3) with default
objects of class B.

To my reading, that says that 'val' should indeed be an object array of type
'test' when the subsasgn method is called assigning a new instance of 'test'
into a non-existent array. So I think that Octave is still behaving

Do you have any data, documentation, or example output from Matlab (and which
version of Matlab) showing a different behavior?
