Either the subtitles were on the original video, or your ripping tool 
cooked them in during the transcode.  If you want toggle-able subtitles 
(softsubs), you either need to rip the image stream containing them, and 
multiplex that into your transcoded file, or you need to run an OCR 
software on the images, and include the resultant 'srt' file along with 
the video file.
