Fields used to logically group defects in components

The project in which i am working has many components. Multiple QA teams distributed geographically are working on the same components Project Manager wants to analyse the defects logged by a particular QA team. Given this scenario, what are the fields he can use to logically group defects?

Labels or Custom Fields or both?

Either would do it.

I'd be tempted to create a simple group-picker field for this, and then think about scripting it so that when an issue is created, the field is set to the group for the team (it would need to make assumptions if the reporter is in more than one of the groups you're interested in)

So you mean Labels and Custom Fields? Is group-picker falling under custom field?

For what?  I said you could use either (or both)

Yes, a group-picker is a custom field type.
