what happens if i update adrenalin on two seperate operating systems?

i have both win 10 and 11 installed on my pc, each on its own drive, and i have 1 rx 6800.
win 10 is my daily driver and i only use win 11 for specific programs so i usually keep my drivers up to date while on win 10.
now my question is what happens if i update the drivers through adrenalin while using the win11 os? will it overwrite the previous driver? is it kept seperate?
is the shared hardware affected at all? (does only vbios update affect HW?)

Obviously first off for dual OS boot is turn off 'Fast Startup' in both.

Now if one 1 OS is insider build, you should only use driver supplied with it.

If you choose to use RTM drivers on insider builds (don't complain here).

And yes, driver update should only apply to the OS/drive in use at the time.
