Of course they are. Who do you think constitutes the council?
But you got me there: The executive board is indeed appointed by the council, not the governments. They even use qualified majority voting.

And who can determine the personal of another institution has power over that institution.
And if the ECB is ever in a legal dispute, the European Court of Justice will decide. The court is probably the most powerful european institution and if you don't even know this, you have no business commenting on the EU.
