I should have checked my configuration before posting the above.
emacs-w3m has an option to send different user agent strings to
specified domains. Example from my current configuration:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq w3m-user-agent
      "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:69.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/69.0"
      '(("youtube.com" . "Emacs-w3m/1.4.620 w3m/0.5.3")))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
