Here is a simple code which produces the figure on the left:
figure; box on; hold on;
line([0,1],[0,1],'LineWidth',10);
scatter(1,0,100,'filled');
Is it possible to stack gray background above graphics objects to get the figure on the right?
Command "set(gca,'Layer','top')" set just the black axis above the objects but not the gray background.

Start with
figure;
axes('ClippingStyle', 'rectangle', ... % Crops the line already
'box', 'on', ...
'NextPlot', 'add'); % Equivalent to: hold on
line([0,1],[0,1],'LineWidth',10);
scatter(1,0,100,'filled');

I did not find a solution for the marker also. What about using line objects to simulate markers? You need a modified version of scatter.
