scaling does not work on Labels

I am testing on 2 rokus: a Roku 4 and a very scaled down version of the roku (Roku express).
I am setting the scaling of the thumbnail properties to indicate when the thumbnail is in focus. On a Roku4 device, this looks just fine. On the Roku express device, all of the elements of the thumbnail scale property except for the labels. On only on the Roku Express, I can set the font and width/height of the labels and achieve the result I am looking for, but then the question arises whether other devices have this short coming. I can assume this only happens on low powered devices, but that is an assumption, I am not sure I can make.

Why is this happening? What is the rule so I can build it into the logic?

Re: scaling does not work on Labels

Which version of the Roku Express is this?  The 3700/3710 model from 2016 or the 3900/3910 model from 2017?  This might help if determining if the bug is related to the device's internal graphics implementation.

This is the model: Roku express 3700x.

Re: scaling does not work on Labels

p.s. I mentioned that I can set the font size and width/height but that is less than ideal since the look of the text doesn't stay consistent as the thumbnail gradually gets bigger or smaller. As I change the font size, the break of the text changes which looks odd. 

Ideally this bug can be fixed for ALL devices, or there is a way to create a bitmap from the text (like other platforms can) and then it would be easier to scale a bitmap than text.
