The reason that I implemented rotate3d and pan as axes properties was
because of subplots where the user might want to pan in one plot and
rotate in another. How does Matlab behave with subplots, especially if
there are mixed 2D (where rotate3D should be disabled) and 3D plots?

I don't think that how it's supposed to be working. I haven't used Matlab for years, but from documentation, it seems that "rotate3d" is just the same as using the rotate toolbar button in the figure window. And as such, it makes sense the property is set at the figure level. It would actually be very difficult to render in the UI (with the toolbar toggle buttons) if you wanted different "mouse modes" in subplots within the same figure.
