yEd Live does currently not offer specific configurations regarding the label placement, although the automatic layout could be configured regarding this aspect (as you've mentioned).

However, you can try to use the 'Generic' labeling approach which places the label considering its current placement setting: 'Layout' -> 'Hierarchic' ->  'Edge Labeling' -> 'Generic' option which may help in your case.
