As described no, they won't interact. If the MATLAB sessions running A and B were started using Parallel Computing Toolbox and the variables in question were of the classes provided by that product to allow two (or more) MATLAB sessions running in parallel to interact, then yes but that's not the situation you described. [You have to do some work to get two MATLAB sessions to interact with one another, or be using a shared resource like the sound card or the same file on disk.]
