I have a WaveShare 2.7inch E-Ink display HAT for Raspberry Pi that includes 4 buttons.

They work very well, but I was wondering if there was a "standard" way to add some sort of cover to them so I can add labels or unique colors?

This question fits the 3D printing world to a Tee. My search efforts found different 3D printed cases to fit other e-ink products, but not one specifically designed for your model.

One may be able to locate a 3D printed Pi case that can be modified by a qualified designer to fit your HAT and incorporate the buttons, along with modification allowing for slip-in legends to match the buttons.

Reddit has a pair of subreddits aimed for people desiring to have custom designs created and/or printed, if you are unable to locate a "perfect-fit" model and/or do not have access to a 3D printer.

I may have found one specific to your model, as it appears to have the buttons in the correct location, on Thingiverse:
