Is it possible to create a column and define its labels?

I’m seeing that you can create a column on a board with this:

mutation {
  create_column (board_id: 20178755, 
        title: "Work status", column_type: dropdown) {
    id
  }
}

But no where in the documentation i see a way of defining the labels for the column_type dropdown.

When trying to set a label on a item

mutation {
  change_column_value (board_id: 20178755, 
      item_id: 200819371, column_id: "status", 
      value: "{\"label\": \"done\"}") {
    id
  }
}

You get a error back that the label does not exist. So it seems you can create a column but not define the options of a dropdown column through the api. Is this true?
