These soldiers are part of the Gendarmerie Nationale (wich is composed about ~100.000),is a brench of the French Armed forces,they are generally in charge of public safety,but they sometimes participe in military operations. (unlike the men of the Police Nationale,they receive a military formation)
-
About 150 men of the Gendarmerie were deployed in Afghanistan to train and assist the Afghan Police.
We can see that they are equipped with G36s.

No,in 2012 France's combat troops were withdrawn from Afghanistan,leaving just some advisers to train the Afghan Army.
The last French troops were withdrawn from Afghanistan on December 31 2014.
