I could see that being used in the same sense that "police officer" is used for a beat cop even if that person doesn't really have an officer rank.
That my take on it, Roddenberry was a LA cop like his father, everyone being a Starfleet "officer" wouldn't depend on whether or not you held a officers commission.

But other than that Starfleet is of course exactly like the US Navy.
