I would not expect this work, as the class labels will always be different in different bootstrap samples: what is class 1 in the original sample may be class 3 in the first bootstrap subsample, and class 4 in the second one, etc. With a single run, a permutation of class labels is irrelevant, but matching the classes over repeated runs, as is needed for the bootstrap, is extremely cumbersome. Moreover, some smaller classes may disappear if they don't have enough observations in a given bootstrap sub-sample. So I don't think the bootstrap is a sensible method for this problem.
