In LCL yes, because it isn't a widget in the normal sense (unlike in
fpGUI). Instead LCL uses Windows-like API calls to render what TLabel
represents. The LCL-fpGUI widgetset doesn't have all those Windows-like
API's implemented yet.
There is actually a whole wiki page dedicated purely to "how to
implement TLabel in a new LCL widgetset". That just goes to show how
different and difficult it is to implement - compared to all the other
fpGUI Toolkit - a cross-platform GUI toolkit using Free Pascal
