There's no contradiction; just different terminology. IETF profiles are constraints on structure and/or semantics; a JSON-LD form is a constraint on structure (over the JSON-LD semantic interpretation).

RDF profiles are a kind of profile indeed.

> To me a specification that would dictate one or the other form of encoding wouldn't count as a profile

That's fine; the IETF definition is as open as possible.
