Implementing Feature Request #12136 should fix this, but at the moment it needs to be a bug.
When zooming in and out, the labels get repositioned so that polygons that are only partially in your viewport, are still labelled. This causes the label to sometimes be placed inside the wrong polygon - which is not great when you print maps (on screen you can at least talk your way through the glitch :-) )

"When zooming in and out, the labels get repositioned so that polygons that are only partially in your viewport, are still labelled."
this is just an option that you can disable. And there is also an option "force point inside polygon".

The Centroid set to "Whole Polygon" removes the problem, but leaves the polygon (piece) unlabelled.
The "Force Point Inside Polygon" seems to have no effect.
But moving "Placement" to "Horizontal (slow) does the trick.
In short - there are plenty of ways to fiddle around until I get what I need.

It might just be because of the particular zoom scale I was at.
I can see why no setting will work for every case, so I'm happy to fiddle until a "correct" placement "appears", as there are plenty toggles to play with.
Thanks for being so quick with suggestions.
Cheers for now,
