The menus were updated in # 55795 to be the same through all of the graphics toolkits, which is when the copy menu was lost.

Octave 5.1.0 "x86_64-w64-mingw32" no longer supports copying figure to clipboard that was available in 4.4.0. So more of a regression than a bug. This feature was particularly useful sending figures via IM/email or inserting in a document. Presumably should be simple to restore given it was previously supported.
