IME, it ultimately depends on how the miles posted. I will illustrate with some instances I had a few years back:
I was flying MBS-RNO and had IRROPS during one of the DEQM, I was rebooked MBS-DTW (NW)-SFO-RNO(UA). I applied for ORC, and did ultimately recieve the DEQM (I *seem* to remember it involved a follow up letter).
My second instance where it did not apply: I was flying LAS-ORD-MBS, I took a VDB and flew LAS-IAD-ORD-MBS. There was some sort of TED RDM promotion at the time on LAS-ORD flights. But I did better on EQM (I was rebooked in full Y), so I did not go for ORC.
So.... in your instance, while you may have been INVOL rerouted via DEN for a ORD/SFO DEQM, if you appled for the ORC, you should get the DEQM. If you stayed with the posting of what you actually flew, I would say no (at least not without some intervention on your part).
