Lets say I make a new address in core and put 5 BTC on it and never touch it.

And then John Smith generates a new wallet on their core and its the same address (yes I understand near rare occurrence)

Would John be able to access the coins I put on my address if they re-scanned their wallet? or would there be a privkey mismatch? I’ve been curious as to this but never quite knew if it was possible even if 0.00000000000000000000000000000001% chance
