I don't believe you can.  The only place I have seen that is in newer versions of MySQL.  Here is a bunch of info about the problems:  https://www.toptal.com/php/a-utf-8-primer-for-php-and-mysql

utf8mb4 is a designation associated with MySQL.  My research yielded some information about this issue, which is encapsulated here.  I apologize in advance for the quality of this article in the E-E site.  E-E has had some problems getting this right.  You might want to use the links to the iconoun  site instead.

TL;DR: There are lots of things  to consider when you make the inevitable move from single-byte encoding to UTF-8.
