You're all wet. The processor has no idea what's happening downstream once the signal leaves the DAC and heads to the amp stage (whether internal or internal). It has nothing to do with the "Atmos...

I don't know what you mean by "sharing" but it sounds like you have the wrong amp assignment. Are you by chance using one of the "2ch" amp assign modes?
