When I try to repair or change data sources, I don't have an option to use a source that has been saved in my local profile favorites dialogue.  Am I missing something in my profile configuration or is this by design?  (See screenshot)

After working with ESRI Support, they showed me a way to get my favorites to behave the way I would have expected in the first place.

Go to your Favorites Pane and right click on each item to select "Add to New Projects"

Matt, that drives me nuts. I know Repair Data Source isn't the only place that does that, but I can't remember at the moment where. According to a comment on that ArcGIS Idea, they thought that a fix would be in Pro 2.9, but I'm using that right now and it's still not an option. At least it's on their road map.
