You cannot manage labels centrally, it can only be done via issues. For example if you need to rename one you would have do a JQL to select all issues with the label, bulk edit them and add the new label, then bulk edit again to remove the old label.

Another option would be to use one of the apps available to manage labels. Just search on labels in the Marketplace
