When you have multiple sites (sessions) where host and user name are the same but the port is a different, the bookmarks and "Site Location profiles" got shared.

Long story short. If you'll create shortcut in Site Location Profile is going to be available only for you, if you'll put shortcut or network drive to shared location is should be available to all winscp sessions.
