I have a book request I made marked as label printed on the 23rd, but there is no "will mail by" date listed. Help docs say there should be a date listed for mailing if the label has been printed.

Is there a details button?

I believe it only gives you a mail by date if the person chooses "I can mail later" and chooses a date.  If the person chooses "I can mail within 2 days" it's not going to give you a date.  I think in those cases it would say "Accepted-Printed" and maybe a date of last printed.

Stauts says  Label: "accepted-printed"

When I click on Details it says "awaiting member".

So as I understand it, they didn't select a "will mail later date" which means they should have mailed it by the 25th, though they have til the 29th (4days) to actually mark it mailed.

If they chose "I can mail within 2 days" rather than a specific date, it will say accepted/printed without a date...and then, yes, they still have the grace period to actually mark it as mailed before the system cancels the order and shifts it to the next person. And some of that depends on the time of day they accepted the order too, since those cancellations and rollovers occur in the middle of the night, it can actually seem longer.
