Carto Rep Feature Labels....
...stay on when Visibility is checked off in the Representation Properties box.

Well -- this is exactly what is meant to happen, and actually it is for a good reason, so let me try to explain, and also tell you how you can turn off the labels.
You have the ability to control the visibility of the features and their labels. These are two separate things – and you want them to be. Sometimes you want the labels to show, but not the features, and sometimes you want the features to show and not the labels. This also applies to subsets of the features – maybe you only want some features to show, or you only want some labels to show.
One way to set the visibility of the features is on the Layer Properties Symbology tab by clicking the small arrow at the bottom right of the Representations dialog box, clicking General Properties, and then clicking the Visibility on or off. But you set the label visibility on the Layer Properties Labels tab. If you don’t want the labels to show for the entire layer, click off the Label features in this layer option. A Definition Query gives you control over which features are drawn, and a SQL Query gives you control over which labels are drawn.
Alternatively, you can use Label Manager to manage labels and their visibility – this is usually a MUCH easier route to take if you have many features labeled in your map.
