FTP directories listing for local and domain acocunts

Just spotted, when accessing FTP using local and domain accounts, would result in different directories listing. For example:
sftp user@server would list differently than, sftp ‘domain\user@server’.

Good explanation here:

Account Type 	Advantages 	Disadvantages
Domain User Accounts

(Used with FTP's Basic Authentication) 	Domain accounts allow for easier access and auditing for domain resources, like content on UNC shares. 	Domain accounts obviously have more access to your network's resources.

For example, if the accounts are part of the local "Domain Users" group, they have access to everything that the group has access to.
Local User Accounts

(Used with FTP's Basic Authentication) 	Local accounts are generally better than domain accounts when you are trying to limit access to your domain, and you can still audit their activity using Windows auditing. 	Local user accounts may still have access to local system resources.

For example, if the accounts are part of the local "Users" group, they have access to everything that the group has access to.
