I use MakeMKV the most lately for ripping DVDs. However, it doesn't do
transcoding. I don't bother with that as I have plenty of disk space and
with a large screen TV, any quality loss from DVD is noticeable.

What format are you transcoding to? Container type? Perhaps your chosen
container doesn't do separate subtitle streams, so the encoder adds the subs
to the picture.
