it's not common imo. all tests except june occur at so called regular test centers. the new regular center list omits many regular ones.

The smaller amount of regular test centers for this testing year is probably due at least in part to the significant declines in the volume of test takers that's been occurring over the last 4-5 years. I'm guessing a bit, but LSAC probably cut out some test centers this cycle in geographic areas that showed the most significant declines in test taker volume/registrant demand over the last year or two or more. You are correct that historically LSAC hasn't commonly or frequently changed/rotated which test centers they regularly use/list as regular test centers from year to year.
Having fewer regular test centers this cycle compared to previous cycles would be a common sense LSAC reaction to adapt to what they're calling 'The new normal' regarding the lower test taker volume/demand to take the test and the corresponding decline in volume of LS applicants.
