@FuchsiaShock German drivers licenses and passports ("Personalausweis") have no gender marker. Never did (since 1945). And if even german bureaucrats don't need it, nobody does :)
@vfrmedia german kind-of soc.sec.no ("Rentenversicherungsnummer") has a gendered 2-digit part. You get a new number when you transition. I think that's one of the very few official things still hardcoded binary gendered.
But they came in trouble with the new official enby genders "divers" and "none", so they decided to "include" enbys into the female number range 50-99.
For german soc.sec, there's now "males" and "others" 🤦
