Fixed in this changeset (https://hg.savannah.gnu.org/hgweb/octave/rev/36b610122086).  I will graft this back on to stable since this is an important regression.

This is a regression from version 3.6.4.

Sample code to reproduce

format hex
x = uint16(4)
x =  0 4

In Octave 3.6.4 and earlier, or Matlab, the result is

x = 0004

Which is expected.
