In Scott Bowden's book 'Armies at Waterloo' He lists seperate jaegers in the line regiments. Were these uniformed as the line soldiers or a differetnt color jacket(green?)?

they had usually green jackets with the facings of the units they served along with, the leather belts usually black as for Füsiliere.

I think these must be the 'Freiwillige Jager' (Volunteer Riflemen) of which independent companies were attached to various line regiments. This being so, then von Winterfeld has it on the detail. There were similar volunteers in some Prussian cavalry regiments in 1813-14. I do not know whether they mustered again for The 100 Days.

See the Mont-saint-jean site.
Line infantry Freiwillige Jagers are shown on the 3rd Fusilier Bn. plates.
