Looking through the database, most of the dd-wrt platforms are wireless routers. There are a few wired routers in the "Linksys wired" list (e.g., RV042) but as far as I can see, no switches. The Netgear list includes no models that don't have wireless.

Switches like the Netgear GS105e and TP-Link TL-SG105E have management features and the 16 port TP-Links have a web management console, so it seems possible that they have hardware capable of running dd-wrt.

Is there no interest in porting to switch devices, or is switch hardware incapable of supporting dd-wrt?

It would be great to be able to use a low-end wired-only device.

You are right that a low end Ethernet switch probably won't have the necessary hardware to support dd-wrt. Besides, the price of a router can easily beat the price of the low end Ethernet switch nowadays.

im assuming a managed switch? some managed switches arent too bad in price, unmanaged are dirt cheap
