in XFA a field may have a caption element which defines the field label. There is no such
element in 'classic' AcroForms. There labels are regular text which is placed independently
(which is something that you can also do in XFA and widely used).

To identify field labels if they are not defined as captions you'd need to get the text positions
and the positions of the fields and see if the text is close to the field which might identify
a label.
