It seems to be oddly route specific without rhyme or reason. For example CVG-MDW allows CLE-MDW, but CVG-PHX did not allow CLE-PHX.
Hence how I set up the OP for DPs. Though perhaps my example is a one-off?

Could be. I haven't looked at / booked many routes to notice discrepancies like that.

Here are some DP's then.
SFO-LAX changed to OAK-LGB (was able to change between the above mentioned airports as well)
DEN-IAD changed to DEN-BWI (was able to change between the above mentioned airports as well)
OAK-BWI allowed changing both directions between any of the above mentioned airports.

Well, CVG-PHX didn't work for me last month for CLE-PHX, but it's working now :)

CVG-PHX: Free change allowed to CMH or CLE.

Do you have to book to see allowed airport changes?

ETA
Does the duration of stay have to be the same?

Any idea if this works for NYC to LA? Desperately trying to get a reasonable priced flight for 2 on 7/25.
Found nothing available on points.

It's route and flight time specific.

Was good while it lasted :( Hoping to get one more change in for Thanksgiving 21. We'll see.
