As the footer says

PLEASE do read the posting guide 
and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.

Those are not labels generated by plot.lm, although similar ones are.
And you seem to be talking about changing _the size_, not changing the 
label (which you do via the caption argument).

I think you are referring to the 'caption' argument, which is not a title 
but plotted by mtext.  The size there is not afffected by any par() 
setting, and probably should be controlled by an argument to plot.lm.
