There is indeed a setting that allows or disallows forced subtitles.  It's
a "live setting", which means it is controlled through the Playback OSD,
rather than in the pages and pages of settings.  If there is a forced
subtitle track present, you should be able to bring up the Playback OSD
menu, Subtitles submenu, "Enable Forced Subtitles".  That setting persists
across all videos on the frontend.
