I'm not sure if I understand this correctly, but I see a point here:
`TeX-arg-ref' inserts an empty pair of braces when the argument is

It is `LaTeX-label' (ah! ;-) which behaves almost exactly as
`reftex-label'.  You could write a function like this:

    (defun LaTeX-exam-label (_optional &optional name type)
      "Indent the line and query/insert a label incl. the \"\\label\" macro.
    Arguments NAME and TYPE are the same as for the function
    `LaTeX-label'.  OPTIONAL is ignored."
      (let ((currenv (LaTeX-current-environment)))
        (LaTeX-label (or name currenv) type)))

And then:

    '("titledquestion" "Title" ["Points"] LaTeX-exam-label (TeX-arg-literal " 

Note that with RefTeX enabled, the job is transferred to `reftex-label',
otherwise `LaTeX-label' itself does it.

Here a small file I tested with:

\qformat{Question \thequestion: \thequestiontitle\dotfill\thepoints}


\titledquestion{RefTeX is not plugged into AUCTeX}[0] When asked for a

  asked for a \verb|(Optional:) What label|, enter \verb|<key>| and
  \verb|\label{<key>}| is inserted

  When asked for a \verb|Label: sec:|, enter \verb|<label>| and
  \verb|\label{<sec:label>}| is inserted
