Well I guess it could be thickness, as socks are less commonly knitted on thicker needles, but I would guess that sock DPNs are a different length, in American standard terminology, than 'standard' DPNs? Maybe a bit shorter? With the many many different lengths DPNs come in I do think that it's a bit pointless... or difficult.
Like maybe hat size, just slightly longer than sock, is the 'standard' in US language?
