Correct. Your will find that the NZ civilian criminal court (Volksgerichtshof) prosecuted resistance groups
including the military. The lines between civilian and military trials blurred as the War progressed. Very harsh.
I recommend that you read Ingo Muller's book "Hitler's Justice" It presents a clear idea of how the courts during the Reich operated.
Also at times, the SS and Geheime Statspolizi (Gestapo) would bring people, unannounced, to central execution sites and order the people beheaded. This would throw the scharfrichter in to a fit possibly because they knew they might not get paid their legal "per head" rate.
Also, military courts might sentence a soldier (e.g. a deserter) and deliver the person to a central execution site where they would be beheaded, although in most cases they were just shot at a military location (e.g. Lichterfeld, etc.)

This site has the finest documentation of persons of the resistance (including clergy) who were beheaded during the Nazi (NZ) years.
So ask any questions...
