I guess I must have driven on different German roads than you because they were not all pristine by any stretch of the imagination. Construction zones on the Autoban feature narrow uneven lanes and surface roads are in general not that much better than those in SoCal. When the Bahn is in good shape and weather/traffic conditions optimal yes they are smooth and unlimited fast. I hit my share of bumps in Germany. They are certainly better at patching potholes than in the states. Plus EU in general is better at keeping the pases clear of rain debris/gravel wash across the roadway.
