"Command division" doesn't necessarily mean they're in command of anyone. It means they're in line to eventually be in a command position as they rise through the ranks - an officer in Engineering or Sciences is not. Similar to "line officers" in the modern US Navy.
Except that in the modern US Navy the Engineering officers are most certainly what Star Trek would call "Command Division" officers.
