-sub-demuxer <[+]name> (-subfile only) (BETA CODE)

Force subtitle demuxer type for -subfile. Use a '+' before the
name to force it, this will skip some checks! Give the demuxer
name as printed by -sub-demuxer help. For backward compatibili-
ty it also accepts the demuxer ID as defined in subreader.h.

maybe just the manual needs to be changed.

It simply reports all available demuxers, it doesn't know which demuxers do not support subtitles.
I don't knwo what you mean by "subtitle demuxer", if you think of ".sub" files or such those are specified with -sub, not with -subfile. -subfile is specifically for picking subtitles from a muxed file, not plain subtitle files.
Suggestions to clarify the documentation welcome if that is the cause of misunderstanding.
