Only theories I found were "they might be the plans for the new hospital" (although I don't get why and haven't found any more info) and that it's some marking made by/for drug dealers.
The best source I could find was this Madeiran blog that quotes a local newspaper (couldn't find the original article though):
The Diario today reports on the strange “diagrams” that are appearing around the city centre, normally found around the small power distribution boxes that are a familiar sight on the street. A number of theories are being advanced on social media, but nobody seems to have an explanation at the moment. Reports say that these have only sprung up recently, but I recall first noticing the earlier in the year. Some are growing overnight with additional sections being added. One wit has accurately observed that they might be the plans for the new hospital in Funchal.
