It's obvious . . they have alien origins.  No other possible sensible explanation . . .  ;-)

It has eight arms, three hearts — and a plan. Scientists aren’t sure how
the cephalopods got to be so intelligent.

They talk about big brains, but actually Octopus and other cephalopods
don't have big brains, their brains are about the size of a rice grain.
Which just makes their intelligence all the more surprising and puzzling,
it seems to me.  But the cephalopods are all fabulous creatures.

There are links to several other interesting cephalopod stories at the end
of this story.
