Am I correct that Rabbanut Yerushalayim (non-Mehadrin) does not check for Glatt?
Correct.

Sheesh. I'm also talking about people who live in Israel, not just visitors. Am I correct that Rabbanut Yerushalayim (non-Mehadrin) does not check for Glatt?
Random tidbit, by law if any Rabbi around the world certifies something as kosher the rabbanut must also when it gets imported.

It's always best to ask your LOR, especially during Shemitta.

Kal v'Chomer. But we were talking about plain ol' Glatt issues.

http://www.jerusalemkoshernews.com/2007/01/the-complicated-kosher-scene-in-israel-an-introduction/

According to this, a Rabbanut must except the hechsher of any other Rabbanut in Israel.  Being that there are Rabbanuts in Israel that will accept pretty much any hechsher worldwide, a Rabbanut can be forced by law to accept the kashrus of a rabbi they don't hold of, potentially any rabbi in the world.
The moment there is a secular law mandating that a hechsher deem a product kosher, the hechsher loses it ability to provide hashgocha in the traditional sense.

ETA: The primary difference between Rabbanut and Rabbanut Mehadrin is that the law does not dictate to the Rabbanut what they must call Mahadrin, only what they must call kosher.   So, at least initially, the whole purpose of  Mehadrin was the Rabbnut's way of reclaiming their ability to provide meaningful hashgocha.  Essentially, the law defined kosher, so they created a code name for real kosher, called mehadrin, which they could define by halacha.
