yeah..he is a tourist. I don´t think you would be subject to such scrutiny unless they had very good solid grounds. such as you were a suspected terrorist or drug smuggler. But as i wrote you could be correct in what you are saying so he should not take the risk.When you are still airside you have not entered the country technically , you have to clear immigration to enter ,customs and immigration has every right to go through your things if they believe you are intending to break the law ,technically illegal working in this case , obstructing them / not giving passwords would see you back on the plane going home.
However I dont know how French immigration would react if you tell them you intend to join the Legion, obviously the Legion is a legit employer who employ`s foreigners but non EU nationals need a work permit to work in the EU , complicated , better for the OP to say they are a back packer in my view.
