Are change orders considered part of the same original order with respect to extending lien dates?

They can extend the contract and may delay the deadline for filing the affidavit of lien but not the dates that notice of lien rights must be filed. There are different deadlines for notice letters depending on whether it is commercial, residential, whether you are the general contractor or a first, second or third tier subcontractor and whether the lien relates to specially fabricated materials.
Whenever you did the work is what matters for lien timelines. It does not matter if it was part of the original scope or a change order, what matters is when you did the work.
The lien timelines are different depending on whether it was a commercial, residential or public works project. You can view the lien timelines here.
