They get inspected by German inspectors but not at the level of TUV. I know TUV is very detailing to the last inch of the car, but the US Forces ones just make sure that the car won't fall apart when you drive it.
For example, if you have a small rust hole on your floorboard, with the US Forces as long as you can patch weld the hole, there is no problem. I've heard that with TUV you would have to do some major work so they can pass it.
