Steps to reproduce the issue

Create a new field in Joomla contacts or Joomla users. In field settings, Options tab, set the 'Show Label' option to 'Hide'

Expected result

The field label should not be displayed when the field is rendered in contact and profile views (default layouts) (working as expected in Articles)

Actual result

Field Label keeps showing

Seems related to #14377 #15244
Unfortunately currently is not possible to change the Field parameter for a context (com content, com user, com contact or external component)

Nope, this is not related to the other issues. It's just that com_contact has an override for the field layout and that one doesn't check the label parameter.
I don't know about the user one, that one should use the regular layout as far as I know.

The regular JLayout is this one:

Well com_users doesn't use an override yet for the field layout it doesn't use either the regular JLayout

At least it can be easily addressed for com_contact

If I'm not wrong, but com_users uses JForm to show the fields. It has a totally different behavior than com_contact. But yes, com_contact should have the same behavior as com_content.

As already said, the profile view is a form and has a totally different set up. I suggest to open a new issue for that one as the logic is very different then the rest of Joomla.
