Is a respondents utility score influenced by other respondents during HB estimation MaxDiff ?

a respondent's score, even if the responses remain the same, may change based on what other respondents in the sample answered the questions?

Indirectly, yes.  All respondents' choices contribute to the "upper level model."  Each respondent's utility is influenced largely by her own choices, but slightly also by the upper level model that comes from the population of respondents.
