You can create a cell array of paragraph and then convert the desired elements to bold. You can refer to the below code:
import mlreportgen.dom.*;
for i = 1:size(A,1)
for j = 1:size(A,2)
ca{1,1}.Children(1).Bold = true; % Use this line to set a specified element as bold
% To view contents in a cell -

That looks to me to be specific to Report Generator ??
I think the user is asking about regular table() objects.

Not for table() objects, no.
For uitable() objects, then for traditional figures, there is a trick of using HTML1.1 wrappers around the text. Something like <HTML><STRONG>2</STRONG> . I do not recommend this approach, but it is possible.
For uifigures instead of traditional figures, I do not know.
