You have to do this trick a couple of times to learn how the mechanics work. This is a workaround for a common compliant about the Structure Label Style in the Dragged State.
Seems silly to have to add the leader vertex, but it forces Civil 3D to obey when coupled with a Label Toogle Pin property assigned to a specific Label.
As Jeff points out in the video, you can employ the Toogle Pin Tool to Labels in other views.
