US withholding on treasuries

Simple question, I hope...

I'm not an US citizen. I live in Switzerland and I only pay taxes in Switzerland.

Suppose I open an account in PostFinance and buy US Treasury Bills or Bonds. On maturity, does the US withhold any portion of the profits?

Secondary question: same thing, but for German Bunds and Germany.

Thanks in advance!
