If you interpret a JSON-LD document as an RDF graph, than no, its semantics do not change.

If, however, you interpret the JSON-LD document as a JSON document (which is a primary reason for JSON-LD profiles and framing), then yes, semantics do change from the JSON perspective. A JSON key that didn't exist in one JSON-LD profile, can have meaning in another.

Hence, I find the exclusion of JSON-LD profiles artificial.
