What references the original labels?

I suspect it is grub.  Have you looked at your grub.conf file?

Yes. I have. Normally you see the root label in grub.conf. I'm ok with that.
But I had a /usr/local and changed its label to the /dev/sdaXX in fstab, but
at boot time the system would display /usr/local1... so I don't know where
that was coming from.
