They sort of used those, too. They used to use both the 14.5 and 11 inch HK416. After the Paris attacks they switched the 11 inch version out in favor of the CZ Bren 2 in 7.62x39mm.

It seems that they feel that 5.56 doesn't have the power against body armor out of such a short barrel (though the French Army use the 416 in both 14.5 and 11 inch to replace the FAMAS).
