From the good book:

"""Formal elements like table, figure, and example are all
automatically numbered by the stylesheets. In general, these titles
are generated by processing the formal element in
mode="object.title.markup". In that mode, the element's gentext
template is taken from the locale file such as common/en.xml using the
context="title" section of the file. The following example shows the
gentext template for figure, except the non-breaking space characters
are replaced by ordinary spaces for clarity:

<l:context name="title">
  <l:template name="figure" text="Figure %n. %t"/>

The %n code is replaced by the number during processing, and the %t by
the title. The number itself is generated by processing the element in
mode="label.markup", and the title using mode="title.markup".

If you want to display just titles for your formal elements, you must
customize its gentext templates and the label.markup mode for each
element. See the section "Table titles without number labels" to see
how it is done for tables."""
