Here's a quick machine translation of the Spanish government advice on residence. It doesn't indicate that EU citizems are required to apply for residency after three months, only that they have have the right to (tienen derecho de residencia).

Quote:
EXCEEDING THREE MONTHS RESIDENCE

The citizens of a Member State of the European Union or of another State party to the agreement on the European economic area have the right of residence in Spanish territory for a period longer than three months if they are in any of the following cases:
  • They are workers employed or self-employed in Spain, or
  • They have, for themselves and members of their families, of adequate resources to not become a burden on the social assistance in Spain during their period of residence, as well as sickness insurance covering all risks in Spain, or
  • They are enrolled in a public or private Centre recognized or funded by the competent educational administration, with the main purpose of studies; and they have a sickness insurance covering all risks in Spain and ensure that they have sufficient resources for themselves and their family members to not become a burden on the social assistance of the Spanish State during their period of residence, or
  • They are members of the family that is accompanied by or that are to meet with a citizen of a Member State of the European Union or of another State party to the agreement on the European economic area that meets the conditions referred to in any of the previous cases
