Product as "a set of boundaries around a social and/or economic relationship" seems exactly right to me, and could be further illustrated by the role of "internal products" at some larger tech companies. You might have, for example, one or more product managers responsible for a federated API and the data sources that feed that API, all of which are entirely inaccessible outside the company. Even though these product managers are not offering anything that anyone outside the company would recognize as a "product", they are still doing the design work or "product work" you describe here.
