Bug report #22076
Capitalize first letter in label not working

If the field used to label the layer contains values all capitalized, then the option "Capitalize first letter" is not working (nothing changes). While the expression `title("field")` works correctly.

From the "Capitalize" function definition (Python):
In Python, the capitalize() method converts the first character of a string to capital (uppercase) letter. If the string has its first character as capital, then it returns the original string.
I'd close this as invalid or file a feature request to implement a "titleize" function.

Indeed. Then imho such a situation shows that there's an issue (people don't seem to understand this label). Or a missing option (aka "titleize" ?) that would help them put it into perspective.
