Indeed, I see the following in my system:

    $ grep /usr/share/applications /var/lib/dpkg/info/gnome-menus.triggers
    interest-noawait /usr/share/applications
    $ dpkg -L octave | grep /usr/share/applications

Since the octave package installs the .desktop file in the appropriate 
directory, then the gnome-menus.postinst script should be run after 
installation of the package.
