Dialer not showing Contact type Label {mobile, work, home, other}

    Is there a way to enable the 'type' detail of the phone number? I have a habit of saving several numbers under the same contact with different 'custom type label' (say: Home, Bangalore, Jio, Airtel, etc). That has worked great for me in the past (it works in iPhone, Motorola, Samsung etc etc) without cluttering my contact list.
    This is how I organize my contact from HDFC Bank for instance (all phone numbers for my contacts in Bank at a single place).

    Right now, One Plus is forcing me to save one contact per person. Or I would have no idea who is calling me from this Bank.

    Eg. Type Label from Stock Android's dialer.​

    Type Label is missing in One Plus Dialer.​

    Can someone please suggest an alternative?

    What I have tried:
    install 3rd party Dialers from Play Store and set it as default. Still when I hit call the OnePlus Dialer actually dials or receives the call.

    Do I need to:
    Root etc and/or sideload the Pixel dialer and replace the current dialer completely?

    Maybe I can:
    Write an Android app to somehow show the Label Type in notification when a call comes.

    Same issue.
    Also when you search from dial, it shows all the numbers below a contract, but no other details. I have no clue which number is which.
