Fallschirmjager were indeed present for the defense of Berlin. 9.FJD was posted to the Oder defenses, and eventually the remnants of the division took up positions inside the city. Elements of the 9.FJD also participated in the breakout to the west from Berlin.
There's a photo taken after the Germans had surrendered Berlin, showing a dead FJ lying in the street with a FG42 nearby. I think it can be found in the book Berlin; Then and Now, but I'm not sure.
