SCUMM: Loom CD Talkie starts with subtitles disabled

Tested with ScummVM 2.5.0 on Windows 10 x64, on the GOG and Steam versions of the game.
If the game is allowed to play the intro without skipping it, then subtitles will be disabled for the messenger nymph speech, Bobbin's thoughts afterwards, and also the gameplay will start in no subtitles mode.
This is regardless of a global setting or game domain setting enforcing showing subtitles.
It seems there's a script command at the end of showing the intro Loom logo (once the swans have flown by between the logo letters), that explicitly disables subtitles; it writes the value of VAR_NOSUBTITLES as true, which results in ScummVM setting the "subtitles" key for Confman to 0.
This was mentioned in the forums here:
I was able to reproduce with ScummVM 2.5.0 and 2.6.0git
