The GUI for data-defined settings is currently not consistent between style and label window: in the style window, there is an extra button to set data-defined settings. It is not possible to see directly which settings are data-defined.
The solution in the label window is better UX-wise: There is a dedicated button besides every option which can be data-defined. On mouse-over, there is a short help. On click, it's possible to directly chose the column which should be used. If data-defined settings are active, the button/icon is highlighted.
I think the label solution should be applied to the style window as well.
