Your premise is incorrect. Only for a short period of time the Germans segregated POW's not for "better treatment", but to prevent the higher enlisted ranks from victimizing the lower ranks... and also to deprive the lower ranks of any leaders who might encourage escapes, etc.
The Japanese did not segregate the enlisted ranks in POW camps... all were used a laborers. As food became scarce in Germany the enlisted ranks were integrated.
