I'm not sure if the hosts file is even read when it's in a profile directory, or where exactly Wireshark expects a hosts file. Do you know if that's supposed to work?

Strange, in Wireshark -2.6.7 on my Mac, I do get resolved names from the "hosts" file in my configuration profile (after turning on Network layer name resolution). Which is how I expect it to work, just like you :-)
