The ODF control for this is <form:frame>.

The label would be  a <form:fixed-text> element. It has an (optional) 
attribute "form:for" which contains the ID of a control for which the 
text is a label.

The same attribute is actually existing for the <form:frame> element 
which defines a group box. Her, it can be used to spacify that the group 
  box is the label for a set of radio buttons.
