Beginning with R2023a, product documentation and examples are not included in the MathWorks Product Installer ISO nor DMG. Documentation can still be accessed inside of MATLAB if you have an internet connection. If you do not have an internet connection and wish to have access to documentation and examples offline, then you will need to download and install them separately:

Ops you are right; sorry it was a typo, it should read R2022B instead of R2013x.
But still how do you explain the R2022B download file of the whole MATLAB + documentation size is 4.5 Gb and the R2023a documentation alone is 9.2 Gb twice larger than this size ?
I actually don't need an explanation, my principal intention is to report and hope whomever in charge of the iso at TMW to investigate.
I'm not sure my post lands to the right person or still lacks of clarity. Let me know if it is the case.
