R does not provide a native 3D coordinate syytem in base graphics.
Therefore, persp() is rather a hack that plots everything based on its
internal code into the device.
Labels are not in the marhings of the 2D coordinate system, hence the
related par() are not functional.
I'd suggest to add the axis titles manually after the plot and keep the
rest unless you want to look fpr alternatives to persp().
Best,
Uwe Ligges
