Captions are not subtitles. It is just metadata in the file containing text, color and position.
SRT does NOT hold postition and color in most instances. (Although it 'is' sorta kinda possible.)

IOW, the end user set creates the captions on the fly, normally ugly with a solid box behind it. Nothing you can do about that.

(It's 40 year old technology made for low bandwidth analogue addition to existing tv broadcast)

If you want total control and burn in, have a look at subbits from my site.
(It has a nice premiere workflow, see here:)
