$smwgChangePropagationProtection is a configuration parameter that sets whether property pages are protected from editing while a property change propagation is being processed. It serves as an emergency configuration parameter to unlock the property pages in case some "ChangePropagationDispatchJob" went missing thus making the property page inaccessible for further editing. Normally this should not be necessary though since a purge should be able to fetch a missing update by scheduling a new job. This setting was introduced in Semantic MediaWiki 3.0.0Released on an unknown date and compatible with MW 1.27.0 - 1.30.x..1

Setting this to "false" will disable edit protection and thus suspend the lock of a property page effective due to a previously triggered property change propagation. This may for example be necessary if someone manually cleans the job table and an existing "ChangePropagationDispatchJob" was not finished meaning that at this point the property page still continues to be annotated with the special property "Change propagation"Holds the new property specification of a property or category page (_CHPRO) and so does the locked. Thus this setting allows to trigger the change propagation process again.
