By "multiple accounts", I meant "multiple accounts per RP on a FIDO device"

RP does not have to always supports multiple accounts per RP case (its his choice). It can however choose to support multiple credential per account on its servers (again it is RP's choice and its the normal case). 

Even if RP does not know what device the credential will end up on, if it supports one account, the credential will be overwritten if the FIDO device has already been provisioned OR will be created if not already provisioned. In both the cases, no user information is required to be passed by the RP.
