Depends.  In some cases the pointer position is a one-way host->guest
ticket (via tablet device).  In some cases the other direction works too
and the guest can warp the mouse pointer to another place on the host
display.  The guest can't easily figure whenever warp works or not
because that depends on host-side configuration the guest has no insight

take care,
