Follow-up Comment #2, bug #62829 (project octave):

I recall this discussion. As I remember, "quiet" is Octave-only, not in
Matlab, hence was never documented. Setting it to "quiet" suppresses the
display of the warning but still records the warning for use in related
functions like lastwarn. This is different from plain "warning off" which will
suppress the display *and* the recording of the warning.

Because of that fine-grain control, the "quiet" option has some use for
custom-display of warnings in user code, but because Matlab does not have it,
there was some debate as to whether Octave should include it or not. I thought
it was resolved but apparently it never was.
