Whether to reserve space for the labels. By default, space is reserved for the labels in these cases:

  • On all horizontal axes.
  • On vertical axes if label.align is right on a left-side axis or left on a right-side axis.
  • On vertical axes if label.align is center.

This can be turned off when for example the labels are rendered inside the plot area instead of outside.
