Indeed, the inter-arrival delay variance, a.k.a. jitter, should not be affected
by manual change of inter-track delay. But then again, it does affect the
overall buffering requirements.
This may not be a problem for a separate subtitle track file, but it is obvious
when tracks come interleaved from the same file. Suddenly audio or text data is
going to arrive much earlier or much latter than video data. That is why the
pts_delay value is partly dependent on the subtitle and audio delay. And thus
the SetJitter() call.
