sorry for the confusion, i did use the uppercase in fstab.

# neither of the following works
# UUID=2560a02a-239b-4ac5-affe-cf71f8e87150 /var/lib/mysql         xfs    noatime        0 0
#LABEL=/mysql2  /var/lib/mysql         xfs    noatime        0 0
# only this works
/dev/sdb                /var/lib/mysql          xfs    noatime        0 0

I think you need to use uppercase for LABEL= and UUID=
