This seems to be due to the fact the mencoder misses MPlayer's
select_subtitle function, that probably should be shared and reused
in order to get consistent behaviour.
In addition mencoder misses MPlayer's load_vob_subtitle and surrounding
code, which leads to other inconsistencies like no support for only
forced subtitles.
