Re: strange documents requested - Permit B renewal for Non-EU

No. That is wrong, they are treated (mostly) the same as Swiss an EU nationals regarding job permits during the 6 month job seeking period. Art. 21 Paragraph 3 FNIA
"if their work is of high academic or economic interest"
So no, they don't have nearly the same freedom as Swiss and EU nationals in choosing a job, it must be plausibly related to their field of studies and on top of that (IIUC) each canton decides what work is of high academic or economic interest for themselves and that information is usually not public.

So yes they are treated as EU/Swiss for the jobs the whatever canton thinkgs they are allowed to apply to but their choice of employment is severely restricted.
