Hmm, I thought the use case for multiplot is to draw more than one plot on one page. Why bothering about axes? I have two plots and I want to place them side by side, multiplot allows for that. Plotting in one diagram is too complex and does not fit my needs

Yes, makes sense.

Well yes, but is it correct that gnuplot produces a tex file that does not contain this information? I mean, the file does not work out-of-the box in my case. What is the intension of this behaviour?

Close, but not quite. It's to draw multiple independent plots on one
page. Plots sharing an x axis aren't independent. If you're using 'set
multiplot', but not 'set size' or 'set origin' (or the "set multiplot
layout" option new in 4.1), you're probably misusing multiplot.

You weren't placing these side by side, were you? At least you didn't
mention anything of the sort until now.

It contains the information you told it to contain. It's actually on
purpose that the filename in an epslatex terminal output is given
without the extension. That allows to run epstopdf on the .eps part, so
the LaTeX part will work under pdflatex without editing.
