%d means decimal format not integer

Actually, %d does mean the argument is expected to be an integer.
However, Matlab has the interesting “feature” that if the argument has
more precision than the format specifier, then it is formatted as a
floating point number anyway, overriding whatever you asked for. Octave
4.0 and later should do this correctly, see

The manual says differently:

"This example shows the use of the ‘%d’ conversion to specify that a scalar argument should be printed in decimal notation"
