if you have the rights to see them, you'll see them. It doesn't
matter where they are.
Even guests, anonymous users, or everybody can have such rights.
You need both of two different sets of rights, one for the share

In fact, I don't understand what you mean by folders in
accounts. Folders aren't in accounts, they are on the hard disk.
Probably a misunderstanding somewhere.
