When I run the latest ffprobe on a QuickTime movie that contains a track of type 'clcp' the output from ffprobe says it's a subtitle track, which is incorrect. In QuickTime, Closed Captioning tracks have the type 'clcp', and Subtitle tracks have a type of 'sbtl' as documented in two sections of this page: https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/QuickTime/qtff/QTFFChap3/qtff3.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40000939-CH205-SW87
The terms Closed Captioning and Subtitles are often used interchangeable, probably due to the way they're presented to the user but they are actually quite different in most every other aspect.
For a good explanation of the differences between closed captioning and subtitle's, I would suggest Jason's overview at this URL: https://cpcweb.zendesk.com/entries/25142571-Closed-Captions-vs-Subtitles
