Thanks for the reply! How about incoming labels coming from 3107 neighbor? Can BIRD program the kernel table with mpls label for next-hop loopback?

Unfortunately BIRD support for MPLS is currently limited. Can be used as
a BGP route reflector, or can configure static MPLS routes (with static
labels) and announce them. But no automatic route labeling.
For example, see this config:
(although static routes there are VPN routes, it is analogous).
