Of course. I took the case of Germany as an example because this thread originally started in the Bundeswehr one.
but it will be the same rule for all nations.

I was only speaking about tanks as an answer to someone's concerns or question.
Tank distribution is only one aspect.
Armored deck will get access to all the tanks, but very few accompanying infantry, and of which only among a limited choice.
Mechanized deck will be the "infantry heavy", with all infantry slots open, all infantry units and IFV available, and the best selection of tank destroyers. That is ATGM, to get there in anti-tank power what it will lacks in heavy tanks.
All thematic decks will have edges and drawbacks in order to balance them.
As for those willing to create a fully authentic decks according to TO&E regulations, there's no problem with that: you do a non-thematic national deck, and you'll be able to put your heavies Abrams with your best Bradley.
