Confirmed that this is a difference with Matlab.  This is likely to be an involved fix because many parts of the Octave graphics code probably rely on the existing behavior.

As noted in bug #50189, Octave returns an array of 4 handles for the following but Matlab returns none.

close all
allchild (gca)

In Octave, the 4 handles are for the title and {x,y,z}label text objects.

Even of those objects have the parent property set to the corresponding axes, they don't appear to be included in the child list for the axes object.
