A difference between County officers & County Central Committee

ORS 248.031 is not talking about county officers, it is talking about the "County Central Committee(s)", which is all the PCPs in a county. 248.031 reads: "The precinct committeepersons of the county shall constitute the county central committee of their party."

ORS 248.035 is the section that describes the election of County Officers and it does not say that they need to be PCPs; it in fact says very much the opposite:
248.035 sub-section (b) reads "The committee next shall elect a chairperson, vice chairperson and other officers the committee considers necessary. The persons elected to the offices need not be members of the county central committee."

In other words, county officers need not be PCPs.
