Hello, when the US Quartermaster service raised its first real "unit"? I mean company/battalion/regiment and ceased to be only a departemental corps with Officers (then NCO's with first 80 Post QM Sergeants in 1884)

it existed a short-lived "Headquarters Office Battalion" in 1864-1865 but the first enlisted men, others than NCO's, appeared not before 1912 (6 000) militarizing civilians employees from what I have found…so I assume it was maybe at this key date of reorganization of the Corps

Correct. The first Quartermaster units, as such, were not formed until 1912 when the Corps was redesignated and reorganized with the consolidation of the Quartermaster, Subsistence, and Paymaster Departments into the Quartermaster Corps and the Finance Corps.
