I know it isn't a configuration available in the control panel but I’m just wondering if there is a fairly simple alteration I could make in the code of my EE5 installation that would allow more than one category to be applied by default to new channel entries in the Channel Manager ‘Settings’ tab?

I'll avoid going into a long story on why, but I have a situation where ideally new entries in a channel would automatically have two categories ticked by default, but at the moment you can only apply one category in that way, via a category checkbox.

I had a little look in the EE5 CMS files but it wasn't obvious to me where and how that might be changed. It maybe that it would be far too complicated anyway.
