It doesn't decrease the DOF at all since that's a physical distance independent of viewing size.

Sorry, wrong answer.

Magnifying magnifies the blur circles too, which makes circles visible that aren't visible without the magnification. In other words, it changes the CoC, which changes the DOF. At high magnification, the blur circles are bigger and easier to see, thus you have less DOF.

See? These are just differently magnified views of the same image.

Those examples represent different output sizes, which this isn't about. This was about seeing the DOF that the sensor sees. What you can see when magnifying, you can see in the final image if printed at a large enough size with a close enough viewing distance to see all the detail captured.

If the size is smaller than that and/or viewing distance larger, the whole discussion becomes moot anyway, since these minute differences become irrelevant to begin with.

But you're free to throw in more theoretical differences.
