Uh, this is _not_ the data in the wtv file, or more precisely that is not the data that Windows Media Center will use to display the CC data (though it should match for normally created files).
Instead, that seems to be the data that Media Center left in the video stream (it itself does not use that, it uses the data in the subtitle streams), which you then let the video code mangle (which also means completely pointless processing since the wtv file already contains the reordered data in the subtitle streams).

You should check the actual file. I suspect that part is fully made up by the decoder filter, in which case this is then completely wrong place to ask because FFmpeg will never encounter that part anywhere.
