The leading + means, that the contents of the folder is a package and has e.g. its own name space. See
By the way: Instead of waiting for the answer in this forum, you will get a faster solution, if you ask an internet search engine for "Matlab folder +".

Funnily enough, this is the first posts I found with the Google search 'matlab "+" folders'. Also, has Matlab changed how paths work? I included the parent folder for my "+" directory and nothing seems to work.
