Is this feature used exclusively for subtitles, or are there any titles that use it for something like text-based bonus features, like the screenplay or trivia about the film?

I believe but not very positive that it is only subtitles. But hopefully someone who knows more can chime in.

I'd have to double check but I think my copy of Confidential Report (1955) [PLFMB 30881] provides several languages through Teletext while also having Teletext pages describing the Pioneer Cinema range. I can't remember if there are any other pages on there.

British Garden Birds (1981) [BBCV 1005L]

It has a full teletext catalog - It was an experiment by the BBC in preparation for the BBC Domesday Project.
Including engineering test pages for teletext.

Im currently looking for other discs with Teletext for testing something...

A few of my PAL laserdiscs have this feature. Rebecca special edition is one of them. No idea if the feature still works. Must dig out my copy sometime and try. I have a feeling it will be a 100% fail.

I have Jurassic Park, with many subtitles (cf. https://www.journaldulapin.com/2017/08/02/laserdisc-teletexte/) and Addams Family, too. But Teletext is a problem for me, when i use "HQ Circuit" on my player, there is many errors on the teletext.
