I´m trying to set a label with the function $area. This works fine. Also with formating ex 1 decimal.

With $area || 'text' the formatting for decimals fails

I had once reported the same issue here #6981 and it was closed because in the expression builder there are now number formatting functions. It is up to you to keep this open or closing it for the same reason.

The format option doesn't work on anything but pure numbers being returned. Once you use || you are returning a string and we can't format that. Use the format_number function
