Because the label is intrinsically associated with the caption (this is
a LaTeX feature and nothing to do with org), not the figure itself.  It
is the caption that creates the number for the reference.  A figure may
contain more than one image, for instance.

Either simply add \label{fig:figure1} to the caption you are specifying
or, if it is that you want to have the table of contents entry, use this
format for the caption:

#+caption[short title]: long caption

which should work, according to the manual (untested).
