Simply because the direct link "Site Collection Cache Profiles" under Site Collection administration is all about Defining NEW cache profiles, not setting one. To configure it (chose which one) you use "Site Output Cache" in the Site Collection, where you can chose from predefined profiles.

It is the difference between, defining the profile, versus applying it, as you could create these profiles, and use them.

So assign cashe profile is by modify output cache? – Rohander Feb 13 '13 at 8:27
You have 2 steps: 1. Define your Cache profile settings (using Site Collection Cache Profiles) and 2. Apply that Cache profile (per Site Collection or Sub-Site more specific, via the Site collection output cache, respectivelly Site Output Cache). Hope is clear now.
