It isn't possible that setting up Sync for one user in Windows would affect any other user account in Windows.

Each Windows Logon User Account (LUA) gets its own Firefox Profile which contains the Sync user data in Firefox that gets synchronized. Plus Firefox also has "user accounts" which are called Profiles. Each Profile would needed to be separately signed in to a Sync account for their separate data to be shared.

The sign in for Sync is via a Firefox Account which can be used for other services offered for Firefox users by Mozilla.
