So you confirm, that "ffprobe" is buggy in case of MPEG format ?
For Matroska format it seems to work correctly. The only inconsistence is, that tag "title" is written in lower case.

But there additionally seems to be a problem with "ffmpeg", because a not requested subtitle stream was additionally added.
