Section 4.1 says:

The pSourceFunc field identifies the source (and possibly the value)
of the encoding parameters, commonly called P.

It should say:

The pSourceFunc field identifies the source (and possibly the value)
of the encoding parameters, commonly called P. In the EME-OAEP encoding
method [P1v2.1] defines this parameter as label L.

Notes:

There is no place where P is linked to the parameter name L as used in
referenced [P1v2.1]
