Yep, though that is a separate issue.

What's really tricky, though, is that you can reset your Microsoft Account password, which will propagate down to the Windows 10 MS Account Linked User Account the first time you enter the new one, but not before.  So you can also go for months and months and months with a different password on your Windows 10 MS Account Linked User Account and actual MS Account so long as you do not enter the new one from the MS Account when logging in to Windows 10.   Not that there's really much purpose in doing so, but I've known a couple of people who virtually demanded different passwords, and this is how I set them up after discovering this by accident.

Explanations exist; they have existed for all time; there is always a well-known solution to every human problem — neat, plausible, and wrong.
