Apparently not. Here is one work-around:

sysuse auto, clear


clonevar mpg2 = mpg
replace mpg2 = 1 + 2 *  floor(mpg/2)
contract mpg2, percent(percent)
gen spercent = string(percent, "%2.1f")
twoway bar percent mpg2, barw(2) bstyle(histogram) ///
|| scatter percent mpg2, ms(i) mlab(spercent) mlabpos(12) ///
yla(, ang(h) format(%2.0f)) legend(off)
