I did not really follow the multi-arch discussison, but it seems to me
that it only regards the location of the shared libraries loaded by the
system loader (/lib/ld-linux.so.*).  I may be wrong, but my guess is that
the files under /usr/lib/octave/ are not concerned, in particular because
the architecture-dependent *.oct files are already under the appropriate
triplet, as you mentioned above.
