DM-03 upper stage 7L:
Per the link below the table lists the Blok DM-03 Phase I Variant I original assignments and the reassignments from the cancelled Glonass-M triplet
and other launches and those that are now unassigned. Blok DM-03 Phase IIa (Baikonur only) will tentatively debut following the completion of the Blok DM-03 Phase I Variant I order assignments. Note that Blok DM-03 Phase IIa stages are as far as I can find unassigned.

Baikonur launch complex 81/24:
Apparently there's still two active pads for Proton. Site 81 Pad 24 and Site 200 Pad 39.
https://ria.ru/20211203/baykonur-1761987597.html

The launches of Elektro-L No. 4 and 5 are planned from 81/24.
Do you have a source indicating that the Elektro-L No.4 and No.5 will be launched from Site 81/24?

The contract for the launch campaign between Roskosmos and TSENKI shows the following:-
Quote
- стартовый комплекс 8П882К (СК);
[source]
Site 81 is 8П882К, where as 200 is 8П882К-4Ф.

Launch year 2023:
https://ria.ru/20220719/spektrometr-1803387972.html

In 2023, the launch of Elektro-L No. 4 is expected, and in 2024, the fifth such satellite.

Launch vehicle delivered:
https://www.roscosmos.ru/38565/

"Proton-M" launch vehicle was delivered to Baikonur Cosmodrome

A train with a rocket carrier rocket "Proton-M" arrived from the Moscow Rocket and Space Plant of the Khrunichev State Space Research and Production Center (included in the State Corporation "Roscosmos") at the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

The blocks of the launch vehicle were transported to the technical complex of the cosmodrome.

Soon the assembly and testing facility is scheduled to begin preparing Proton-M for the launch campaign.

The #ElectroL №4 satellite has been delivered to Baikonur this week. If everything goes by the plane, it will be the first Russian launch next year, on February 5, 2023, and one of two Proton launches in the same month.

If the Elektro-L No.4 is launched, there are five Protons left to be launched. The answer to this question has already been discussed elsewhere on this forum:

Where are you getting "five Protons left to be launched."?  If you look back at your own posts in the thread you linked, you'll find one saying there are a lot more than five Protons left in inventory.

There was a report by the TASS news agency in January of last year mentioning ten completed Protons and four more in the process of manufacture. One of the completed Protons launched the Angosat-2, and another of the completed Protons is being prepared to launch the Elektro-L No.4. The "five Protons left to be launched" that I mentioned have been assigned to launch the Luch 5, Ekvator, Ekspress AMU-4, Elektro-L No.4, and the Ekspress AMU-5 and Ekspress AMU-6.

So you think because no other payloads have been publicly announced there won't be any more Proton launches?
