I think most will prefer stand alone functions.

The reason is that, it is simpler to integrate/use a single
stand alone function on your code, than an object or class.

As long as the standalone function has clean API and does
not depend on undefined things in the environment to use,
it will be much easier to move around on its own, plug
it in any one place and use it. With objects, it is more
involved. This does not mean OO itself is bad, but I think
for what most people use Matlab for, which is small/quick
prototype programs to try things out, a small, self
contained functions, are easier to use/understand.
