What is the difference between a `label` tag and a `caption` tag?

What is the difference between the label tag and the caption tag. Could either be used when building forms? Why or why not? Thank you kindly!!! :grinning:

The label element associates some text (may be referred to as a ‘caption’) to a corresponding form control. Other than forms, it doesn’t have a role in HTML.

caption can be only be used in a table element. The two semantic elements are not interchangeable, though both are important for accessibility.
