Forced subtitles are often used when characters start speaking a language
other than the "main" one in the movie. E.g., if it's an English-language
movie and two characters start having a conversation in Japanese, forced
subtitles will show the English translations of what the Japanese-speaking
characters are saying.

I think it's common in the US, but I'd be surprised if it's only in the US.
I mean, unless everyone outside the US is also fluent in Klingon or
Dothraki, people everywhere will need those subtitles. :)
