Please provide the command line you used and the complete, 
uncut console output and please point to a very short sample.

FFmpeg does no de-interlacing at all if not explicitly told 
to do so.
(Otoh, progressive material can be encoded using MBAFF - and 
even PAFF - and since the H264 decoder can only output frames, 
you will get the - original - progressive material if you 
encode the frames coming from the decoder.)
