Soft Subtitles with HandBrakeCLI? How?

I'm trying to figure out what is the difference between HandBrake GUI and HandBrakeCLI in respect to how they encode subtitles. If I use the GUI and don't choose forced, it makes the subtitles as a track in the resulting MP4. If I use CLI, the subtitle is always burned into the MP4. How can I do soft subs with CLI? I'm using 0.9.5.

Here is an example command that I use:

HandBrakeCLI -f mp4 -e x264 --crop -r -p -q 0.62 -a 1,1 -E faac,ac3 -6 dpl2,auto -R 48,Auto -B 160,auto -D 1.5,2.5 -d slower -s 1,2,3,4,5 -x ref=2:bframes=2:subme=6:mixed-refs=0:weightb=0:8x8dct=0:trellis=0 -v -i input.iso -o output.mp4
