Wrong. It is obligatory to put them on the wheels if mandated by the police or signage.
True, that is definitely the law according to Art. 29 SSV.

However, the several times I've been asked about chains at a police checkpoint they have only been checking I had them, and in most cases the snow chain sign was not in place further up the road and they were not needed.

So I guess there are cases where they are non-obligatory but only if you fancy your chance arguing with the police about it.
