Duplicate of bug #44590.  Unfortunately, we've had the code, but not the documentation, for over a year and a half.

Octave also uses such documentation only m-files to document operators and such, see the discussion in bug #49526, but all the hard work of describing this class syntax (in the manual [1] and/or in an m-file) remains to be done.
The only Octave resource I know of is [2].

There doesn't seem to be an help text for 'classdef' (there is one for 'function' though):

>> help classdef
error: help: 'classdef' not found

Matlab has comment-only M-files for this (as returned by 'which').
