Application sharing shares an application, including multiple windows of the same application at once, so the label is correct.

Click the "Window" button instead of "Application" to get the desired result.

A lot of people seem confused by this, so perhaps we should drop application sharing.

I tried sharing a window by clicking the "Window" button, but that doesn't work for me, see
