I have two accounts on my phone (Android 7.1.2)

If one app has "read contacts" permission can it read the contacts for all my accounts or only the account I install it or use it as?

Does it change the answer if the app also has "find accounts" or any other permission?

This question is motivated by the WhatsApp app, but it would apply to many others.
