Is it possible to migrate changes to OWD's via a Changesets?

If it is possible, what is the category name to look under when adding an OWD to a changeset?


I know this is an old question, but either the answer has changed or the answer was wrong.

OWD is deployed as part of the metadata of the object.

    The answer has changed. This is a 5 yr old question and MUCH has changed in 5yrs on the platform. – crmprogdev Jun 26 '18 at 11:56

It looks like the answer is "no." Based on the components available listing, you can deploy sharing rules for individual objects but not the OWDs.
