Testing sample outlets in home inspection is routine. Testing every outlet would cost extra.

The answer is correct: devices plugged into the splitter will see no meaningful difference. Your outlets are splitters also, an external splitter is no different. You can draw power up to the point where the total draw is exceeds a limit.

comment Why does cold water always mix in bathtub mixing valve, even on hottest setting?
The behavior is not universal behavior, nor is it unheard of. You can get an idea of pressure by watching flow of hot & cold from a nearby fixture or the same fixture at different handle angles. I think it worth your while to call Grohe and then even better if you report back here on what they say. Thermostatic values are considered superior in this way and others.
