Lock associative label position after placing

I am looking for a way to ensure that my associative labels stop moving after I place them. The interior design team at my firm spends a lot of time adjusting and fixing labels throughout the documentation process, and do not like that associative labels move anytime an object relocates (for example, a label moving 4" to the left when a toilet is relocated 4" to the left).

 

Is there some sort of GDL parameter I can modify with labels to ensure that those labels stay in fixed position once they are placed? Using "Lock" on the object does not work as the label still moves.

 

Currently, this behavior is frustrating enough to our interiors team that they actually use independent labels on every single object on interior elevations; I am looking for a way to encourage them to use associative labels to reduce the risk of data entry/tagging errors.
