No, that’s not the case.  CloudMounter spoofs the Mac file system into thinking Dropbox is an external volume, therefore eliminating the need to sync copies of files between Dropbox and your Mac.  But your iOS and/or Windows machines that access the same Dropbox account would see no difference—nor would your Mac apps see a difference when they access the Dropbox files. 

The end result is similar to using a Synology NAS, which is mounted to your local Mac as an external volume.  With the proper setup on Synology and the DS Files app on your iOS device, you can also access those files through iOS Document Provider / Document Picker.

The only problem I see with syncing between various OSses: If you use the file encryption feature of CloudMounter, you won’t be able to open the files on Windows or the iPad.

Transmit, one of the best SFTP clients on macOS also now lets you mount discs in the finder. From their web page:

“With the new Transmit Disk feature, you can now mount any of your favorites in the Finder itself, even if Transmit’s not running. These volumes are real: drag files to your SFTP server, save a small graphic to your Amazon S3 bucket directly from Photoshop, or roll your own iDisk-like backup volume. It’s all possible in T4.”
