The help text with the message says that the person making the change needs Object management (*OBJMGT) and use (*USE) authority to the profile. Belonging to the *SecAdm class does not have anything to do with this.

If you do a DSPOBJAUT on the profile, it will tell you who has authority in each category. In my case, only the user and QSECOFR have such authority. (I'm pretty sure that *ALLOBJ authority would allow him/her to make the change - but not something I would recommend.)

You might check the archives for work arounds or ways to set this up. I know the question has come up here more than once.
