I think you've go this wrong, but the FAQ on UA's site is long gone. IIRC:

If you now change region or cabin of service on an award made before Jan 1, 2009, you will have to pay the higher redemption rates.

If you change city, dates, or routings, you will not.

OP is still flying to the same region with the suggested routing change, so should be OK.

I just checked on an award ticket made last year that I changed on January 23. I changed the outbound from JFK-VIE to IAD-MUC and an intra-Europe segment from LED-VIE to LED-VCE and it did not cost me additional miles.
