With reference to this document:

You can change your organisation name in O365 and it is reflected in OneDrive's representation in FileExplorer. This is what we are wanting as the Organisation name is ridiculously long. (hence paths to locally synch'd files becomes ridiculously long too).
All good.

However, that is OneDrive.
Now that the OneDrive client is responsible for SharePoint Sync, does any know that the separate icon that OneDrive client puts in File Explorer for SharePoint and Teams document libraries... does that get the new Organisation name as well. (I'm not bothered about the name in web links).
The two icons I'm referring to are these:

OneDrive client creates the top icon (and the associated very long name) if I sync a Sharepoint library or Teams library.  

I have a feeling it would as I think the client is responsible... but anyone know for sure
