I know that for pronominal verb there are four categories of meanings, which are le sens absolu, le sens réfléchi, le sens réciproque et le sens passif.

And I know too COD or COI determines whether a pronominal verb should be accorded or not.

But how do we decide whether it should be accorded or not? And how do we do that exactly?

My examples are as below: Les vacances qu'il s'était octroyées.

Ils se sont octroyé une semaine de repos.

Merci d'avance !

It's correct : Il s'était octroyé - quoi - ? The COD is before so you must agree

Ils se sont octroyé - quoi - ? une semaine de repos COD = after so you must agree
