You are correct. The definition of 3rd country was not supplied on the referenced pages but on other pages they define it elsewhere as non-CH/EU..

Except OP is not a third-country national.

That is correct. Holding a European passport opens more travel possibilities, always while respecting safety and health-related guidelines, of course.

Since you enter Schengen in FRA you are technically free to roam the airport and go over to the Centogene testing facility and take a test while in transit to your final destination. The result will be transmitted to you via email, or rather you get a notification to check the centogene portal. To save time, register with centogene in advance, then you just have to show the two QR codes can skip the first line.
