Is this an issue with the installation?

There is no problem with the installation.
No one should modify the build-in pathdef.m.
Instead, everyone should use a short-cut icon to start MATLAB. The startup folder can be specified at the shortcut icon. Utilize MATLAB preference and save customize folder to user path.
prefdir()
userpath()
