Yep, by default it displays anything, trying to consult the schema
(from the namespace declarations) for a suitable label, otherwise just
uses the property name.

Have you all tried hovering your pointer above the labels?

Oh, and regarding the "missing foaf:Person issue", I employ the same
approach as Jim: Look for properties with a domain of foaf:Person (as
well), since these can never be "missing" like the rdf:type information

(By missing I don't mean that they can't not be present, but the only
"fixed" part of a triple is the predicate.)
