My guess is they are cadets and the rifles aren't functional.
Spain: Purchased the G36E to equip all branches of the Spanish Armed Forces. 75,219 units acquired with deliveries starting in 1999 and completed in 2005; 60,000 rifles were issued to the Spanish Army, 7,559 were allotted to the Spanish Navy and the Spanish Air Force received a total of 7,660 weapons. Naval G36's are slightly different in that they feature a 3x optical sight. The rifles are manufactured jointly by both Heckler & Koch in Oberndorf am Neckar and the General Dynamics Santa Bárbara Sistemas facility in A Coruña, Spain at a unit cost of €778.99

I think the rifles are functional but of course nobody goes into combat with a Mauser anymore. The main rifle of the Spanish Armed forces is the HECKLER & KOCH G 36 as you can see in the last set of photos.
