I never paid much attention to "removable" or not back when I was buying boxes 
of labels,  but in the years since then I've found that those tend to dry out 
and _fall off_ whatever they were applied to,  like some of the file folders 
I have on hand here,  among other things.  Some others take a lot of scraping 
and such to get them off,  if I can get them off at all.

I wouldn't worry about glue residue,  really.  A sharp knife will get the 
worst of it off,  if necessary.
