Both the original example with a 2D position and the updated one with a 3D position work for me in Octave 4.0, tested with both FLTK and Qt toolkits.

The 'layer' attribute is respected now.  This bug is still present because the 'position' attribute is set by the user, not Octave.  I don't think I'll bother to fix this.  If you need the ylabel to be out in front then give it a Z-height that is greater than 0.

ylabel("foo", "position", [1 1 1])

I tried the example using Matlab, and the ylabel show up on top.

I think this is related to bug #35648.  The problem is with the axis object (which has ylabel as a child) and the 'layer' attribute.  The 'layer' attribute doesn't work when using the FLTK graphics toolkit.  Most of the time this means all the axis objects are placed below the other plotted objects so the 'foo' label shouldn't really be visible.  In this case, it is visible when the plot is made in Octave, but correctly hidden behind the bar graph when printed.

The code below produces a figure with the y-label inside the first bar, but it is hidden in the printed png.

bar([2 1]);
ylabel("foo", "position", [1 1])
print foo.png ;
