Easy peasy. CC/SDH is packaged with the film and considered part of the whole. It doesn't exist separately from the film.

Audiobooks, OTOH, are derivatives of the original text (either print or ebook), and the AI is meant to transcribe from audio to text: a format which already exists and thus falls foul of the existing copyright on the original text.
