What I want to know is, are there any governing standards, notably by
AISC (such as the Code of Standard Practice) that governs how something

The state engineering law covers your obligations. If you accept the contractor's change without proper verification, you are acting negligently, which could cost you your license. The AISC and other codes address engineering requirements for design, not professional conduct.
