Your problem is not with contains(), it is with xsl:variable.

I suspect you meant select="'label'": the string 'label', not the content of
the child::label element.

Incidentally, the only difference between match=".//UserDefined" and
match="UserDefined" is that they have different priority. They match exactly
the same nodes, namely all <UserDefined> elements.
