Trying characters and expressions variously it seems that font.lab applies to character strings but not to expressions so if you want to use an expression just use bold (or whatever) explicitly on the expression. One gotcha is that bold will not work as one might have expected on numbers so they must be represented as character strings -- which is why we have used "3" rather than 3 below.

plot(rnorm(10),rnorm(10),xlab=quote(bold(year)),ylab=quote(bold("Mx10"^"3")))
