Not at the moment, no. The label cache rendering takes place independently of layer drawing and
layer opacity isn't taken into account when labels are rendered. Probably should be... I start a 
ticket. Labels would need their own OPACITY keyword in this case or would have to respect LAYER

Labels drawn independently of the cache, e.g. LABELPRECACHE ON are affected by LAYER OPACITY
but are not subject to collision avoidance.
