I persist in thinking that it can be very confusing when labels do not update (I have seen cases of confusion when legends are not shown with only 1 curve in each plot, and changing the plot contents with the plot dialog does not change the label). 
Since labels are set automagically in the first place when using the datawizard (which I assume is a pretty common workflow), users expect them to always behave that way, i.e. being synced automatically.
While I do understand that automatic labels sometimes need to be overriden manually, and these manual changes should not be lost, I think an "Autoupdate" checkbox solves that issue neatly while being much more predictable for users. We could actually even have the datawizard obey that autoupdate property, so that the current not so nice behavior of overwriting manually set labels disappears. 

I must say I fail to see why you are reluctant here... Is this really a lost case ?
