No, you'd be wrong. Try yourself, yast does it. Click on the button for
"fstab options" and you will see the label entry inside.

I did that before writing my previous thread post. I see no option to
create a label for formatting a swap partition type, only an option to
mount by label if a label already exists. IOW, to format a swap
partition, YaST offers no options at all.

And I tried myself in YaST before posting. It does work :-)

I did not all the way through, for three reasons:

1-absence of existing swap partitions lacking labels;

2-lack of interest in creating new a swap partition just to test this;

3-the only things I ever do with the YaST "partitioner" is choose mount point, choose mounting options, and optionally select to be formatted...

Except for one time about three years ago on a 2TB data-only HD, all of my BIOS-compatible partition table operations I do with DFSee, a cross platform app with binaries functionally and behaviorally identical for DOS, Linux, Mac, OS/2 & Windows.

It is in your photo. Click on "Volume label", then write a label, and
the label is created.

That is non-intuitive (unexpected) workflow. Everything else in that window is about what gets written to fstab. The logical place to create the label would be elsewhere involving writing to a partition, such as formatting and formatting options.
