IMHO I only came across such legal terms in a contract proposal by
some US company, a couple of years ago.
Apart from US companies I can't confirm that such contracts are common
practice, particularly not under German law.

Source code that is pretty much unrelated to your typical day job that
is developed during non working hours, is typically not copyright of
your employer as long as this is not stated explicitely -- and I
wouldn't sign such a contract. Otherwise the tomatos that you harvest
in the summer in your garden might also become property of your
employer ;)
