Safety of mounting with portable version on a work laptop

On a work laptop without admin privileges, I’m able to use portable Cryptomator.

Our Windows user accounts are backed up, so you can log in on a colleague’s computer and see your Desktop and Documents files.

If I mount a vault, should I assume the unencrypted files could be auto-backed up in the background to the organization’s servers? Could this differ whether I map a WebDAV drive in Windows File Explorer or have the encrypted vault saved on the laptop?

On a work laptop you have no expectation of Privacy, if you mount a vault you can expect that all data in that vault including your tokens/passwords to open the vault have been collected by your employer.
