After what happened to Mega I would think they are all scanning your files regardless of what they say.
It goes without saying that they would check for illegal activities that may implicate Google legally. Mega was targeted because it allowed unrestricted sharing of copyrighted material, not just because it hosted the files. In this case, Google is scanning contents of documents and other files and then using the information for their own purposes. I wouldn't store things like medical records, business or financial documents and other possibly sensitive information on Google Drive.
