I am not sure, whether message archive groups do have anything to do with 
select methods.  Select methods are about receiving mail, while archive group 
is chosen when you start to compose a message.

I’m using the following piece of config to place a letter in a current group 
(in particular that means to the same group where the message I’m replying is 
stored) or in ‘INBOX’ by default:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq gnus-message-archive-group
         ((string-prefix-p "nnimap+" group) group)
         (t "nnimap+g:INBOX"))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

(By the way, why don’t you do the same?  What is the point to separate sent 
letters from received ones?)

Anyway, what you probably want to do may look like that, I guess:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(setq gnus-message-archive-group
         ((string-prefix-p "nnimap+gmx:" group) "nnimap+gmx:Gesendet")
         ((string-prefix-p "nnimap+gmail:" group) "nnimap+gmail:Sent Mail")
         (t "nnimap+gmail:Sent Mail"))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
