How is currency formatted in the sap.m.ObjectNumber API

We use the sap.m.ObjectNumber to display the number formatted based on the currency key as shown below. I have issues with formatting of the USD vs EUR. The decimal and thousand separator shows the same as shown below. For EUR, I except ',' as decimal seperator and '.' as thousand separator. For USD, I except the opposite. My understanding is that it is formatted based on the regional settings of your computer. However, when I tried to change it , it does not reflect in the UI. Anybody ,please explain how is this thing working.

<ObjectNumber class="sapUiSmallMarginBottom" binding="{/ProductCollection/0}"
number="{ parts:[{path:'Price'},{path:'CurrencyCode'}], type: 'sap.ui.model.type.Currency', formatOptions: {showMeasure: false} }"
unit="{CurrencyCode}" numberUnit="{CurrencyCode}"/>
