No, there isn't. You can add entries in your fstab file with share,
mountpoints and options there but that has to be done for each share you
plan to mount, probably not what you want.

You could make a wrapper script around mount.cifs that would check or add
the vers option. Something like this pseudo code:

    if "vers" in $opts:
        if val("vers", $opts) < 2.1:
            err("min supported version is 2.1")
        set("vers", $opts, 2.1)
    call mount.cifs $share $mnt -o $opts
