Code to reproduce:

help properties

'properties' is a built-in function from the file libinterp/octave-value/ov-classdef.cc

There is help text in ov-classdef.cc for the function "properties".  There is also help text in libinterp/op-kw-docs but this is commented out because our help system only allows one DOCSTRING entry per keyword.  Here is the code there

@c ## FIXME: Can't have duplicate DOCSTRING entries.  The function properties
@c ##        already has a docstring which overrides this keyword definition.
@c properties
@c  libinterp/parse-tree/oct-parse.yy
@c -*- texinfo -*-
@c @deftypefn {} {} properties
@c Begin a properties block in a classdef definition.
@c @end deftypefn
