Did you ever manage to figure out what was wrong with the labels?

I have been having similar issues with one of my customer's tenants.
Originally the labeling only worked in one of the client applications and not at all on OWA.
Then I had multiple calls with Microsoft experts and the labeling suddenly started working on clients while toggling the settings.
After this, the labeling had worked fine for almost 3 months and now suddenly the auto-labeling for emails and the requirement to label files has stopped working.
In OWA, these both work fine.
