On my windows 3.8.1 install:

with 'tab indents line' preference not set, shift tab moved the cursor back a tab space.

with 'tab indents line' set, shift tab un-tabs the line.

On mac (octave-forge dmg) Shift-Tab moves the cursor back x characters (as defined in the preference pane for tab width) unless the whole line is selected in which case the line is actually unindented.

must be windows-specific then.

When the cursor is before the beginning of the indented line, Shift-Tab unindents the line on my system (Ubuntu Unity). I do not need to select the line. Or do I misunderstand your report?

in the editor current line

some pointers:
<https://bitbucket.org/tortoisehg/thg/issue/82/allow-shift-tab-to-un-indent>: "Apparently Scintilla's default behavior is correct, but Qt's wrapper for the widget steals the keypresses."
