Ok, I think Octave is querying the defaults on its own and passing it down to
qterminal then.

Does setting "OCTAVE_DEFAULT_FONT=Menlo" in the environment before starting

libgui/src/resource-manager.cc is where this is done.

On my Debian system, it also picks a bad default, strangely it doesn't use my
Fontconfig preferences for Monospace, it instead picks "DejaVu Sans Mono". If
I set "OCTAVE_DEFAULT_FONT=Noto Mono" in my environment then it works, and
that value is written to all of the font settings in qt-settings or
