Yes, suggestions for the labels.

Your code (which I did not try) indicates that you use toggle buttons: 
:button (:toggle . (memq 'turn-on-auto-fill text-mode-hook))

They should thus appear similar to what we see in the Options menu.
You can tell by looking at the menu item and its checkmark (or lack
thereof) that the item represents something with two states ("modes"),
and you can tell what the current state is.

This means that you need not add words in the menu item label to say
that the thing is modal: "... Minor Mode".  (Yes, one cannot tell from
the toggle button alone that the mode is minor, but that is only minor
info. ;-))
