Follow-up Comment #6, bug #58299 (project octave):

In some cases, package installations may not be compatible across minor or
even patch version upgrades of Octave. At least on macOS, oct-files have
linkage dependancy on the exact installation location of the Octave they were
built under. And some installation mechanisms, such as Homebrew or Octave.app,
have the full version name of Octave in the path to the installation (to allow
side-by-side installations of multiple versions). So for this to work
generally, you may need to make the package repositories completely

This is what Octave.app does.
