Sure there is. A possible set of bindings - in that case for tmp421 -
is suggested with the series at
https://lore.kernel.org/linux-hwmon/cover.1631021349.git.krzysztof.adamski@nokia.com/

That specifically includes the ability to enable or disable channels
using the standard 'status' property. While that series is primarily
for the n-factor property supported by the tmp421, the same approach
can be used for all temperature sensor properties.
