Don't know about France but at least the German border guards sometimes give their Swiss colleagues a call when someone has his/her forms stamped and made a big purchase.
I have personally witnessed this in Thayngen. I was second in line and as soon as the guy in front of me left and it was about my turn: the guard asked me to wait a moment, picked up the phone, clicked the first button on the speed dial and said "incoming", done... it looked like something he did so automatically that he did not have to think about it.

It happened to me also. Bought something a bit over the 300 limit, German stamp, drove to the swiss border and before I could say I had something the guy knew the value and the item.
