There are 2 reasons for taking an OATH

1 a solemn promise, often invoking a divine witness, regarding one's future action or behavior : they took an oath of allegiance to the king.

• a sworn declaration that one will tell the truth, esp. in a court of law.

So one reason would be a solemn promise invoking a divine witness and the other is a sworn declaration to tell the truth in a court of law.

To perjure is willfully tell an untruth when giving evidence to a court; commit perjury.

These Article VI named officials are not in a court of law therefore cannot be held to perjury.

Their oath or solemn promise is made to what is a label namely, "The Constitution of the United States" which is not a document because there is no evidence the this label is a documnet. There would only be evidence that this label is a document if the document was signed by the one which takes the oath.
