Example:
>> istable(t)
ans =
1
>> t
t =
a b c
_ _ _
1 2 3
>> isfield(t,'a')
ans =
0
>> any(strcmp('a',fieldnames(t)))
ans =
1

Yes - it is something they have missed. Thank you for the work-around with: any(strcmp('a',fieldnames(t)))

That does seem inconsistent. It has the same behavior for dataset objects as well.
