A good subsetting should either keep or remove both together, the table and the glyph (a better subsetting should keep both only if "f" and "j" are also included in the subset).
I know Calibre blanks out the characters not in use. I believe the table entry is still there as when the ligature is missing, and it's trying to be used, you get space instead of a character.
