Default Changed Site field in Change History Record

I find the info provided in the Change History Records for Site changes to be of limited value. For example, here's the value for a recent change on the Ohio MARCS-IP system:

"Changed Site # 027 (Grafton CI) to 027 (Grafton C.I.)"

Even if you dig down into the associated pages it is often not clear what if anything has been changed for the given site.

Would it be possible to add more info, e.g., Changed/Added CC, Updated GeoLocation, added sister sites, etc., to the changes records. When I discussed this with one of the DB Admins, he indicated that the include info is controlled by the backend of the RR system.

He's correct, the updates are automagically generated by the database, and we have no direct control over the information given in the updates when we make changes.
This would need to be a modification made to the database software...
