No, that is not correct. It will sync all the files defined in the client
mappings. In order to get the behavior you describe, you must limit
p4 sync by specifying a set of files, like "p4 sync ..." that will then
make sync work relative to your current location. A bare "p4 sync" will
bring your whole client up to date.

I do not know what it means to "pull proj2", but perhaps you must need to include
those other folders in your client mapping.
