The ".sub" suffix is mapped to the MicroDVD subtitle format. The format
you are looking for is (likely) the VobSub format.

But ffmpeg can't actually extract to that (yet):

ffmpeg can (probably) embed your extracted subtitle stream into another
VOB file, but I haven't tried, and I don't know whether that's of any
use to you.
