It seems Microsoft is purposely locking this feature out to limit external traffic. With this approach, they don't have to implement block-level synchronization in OneDrive. It also stops RoboCopy "backup only" solutions from working through WebDAV. The problem with this particular approach is that the OneDrive app has various problems with its own operation, that have been reported through the Feedback hub and not yet fixed, and as a result, isn't reliable enough to trust 100%, meaning that with this limitation, is also now completely useless.

WebDAV used to work in 2014. Now, you can see a list of folders, and that's about it. Virtually every other activity has been cut off by Microsoft, and I am positive it is to keep people like myself from using it as a 'Backup Only' solution...
