I am looking for a Google Chrome extension that replaces any link to http://doi.org/[DOI] present on a webpage with some open access DOI resolver, e.g. oadoi.org or doai.io.

For example, if the link is http://doi.org/10.1016/j.tree.2007.03.007 it should be replaced with either http://oadoi.org/10.1016/j.tree.2007.03.007 or http://doai.io/10.1016/j.tree.2007.03.007 (or any other open access DOI resolver).

I am aware of the Google Chrome extension Find DOI in sci-hub, which allows to conveniently grab the article from Sci-hub, but I would prefer to also easily access open access DOI resolvers, e.g. in case the article isn't available on Sci-hub, and avoid to unneccessarily use Sci-hub's bandwidth.

I wrote the DOI Resolver extension for Chrome. When both Autolink and Custom Resolver are enabled in Options, the feature that I believe you're looking for is exposed: "Rewrite existing dx.doi.org links to use the Custom DOI Resolver".
