The autoload cookies in cl-extra.el are setup such that it means "once
cl-lib is loaded, those functions get autoloaded".  Which is why you
still need to load cl-lib in order to setup the autoload.

But really, you don't need to know any of that.  cl-subseq is a function
exported by cl-lib, so you need to load cl-lib to use the function (the
fact that it uses an autoload is a detail internal to cl-lib, just like
the fact that it's not defined in cl-lib.el but in cl-extra.el).
