Where are the Partner Label and Product label reports?

When viewing a partner, under the print menu, you can choose "Label". I'd like to modify this report. From the OpenOffice report designer plugin, which of the existing reports corresponds to the "Label" report? I don't see it. If it's not there then how does one modify this report? Similarly with the Product label.

The Partner Label report is a XML/XSL report. It is similar to the Product Label report. It consists of the following files:

  • addons/base/res/report/partner_address.xml
  • addons/base/res/report/partner_address.xsl

You can not edit this report with OpenOffice since it can only handle RML/SXW reports.

Some info which could be added to this answer: Is there a practical reason why these reports are different from the others? What is the most common way to achieve a modified Partner or Product label report? Create a new report?

It seems that all reports which place more that one object on the same page (like the labels report) are in XML style. I think that this should also be possible with RML, but I suggest to create a new question for it.
