I'm not sure about the TB displays but I had a similar setup using the Cinema Displays and it was able to tell them apart.
Since the work display sees the devices as USB instead of ThunderBolt, perhaps you don't have all the drivers/firmwares loaded. There have been 3 recent regarding ThunderBolt. Make sure you have applied them all in both locations.
- Thunderbolt firmware update (per computer)
- Thunderbolt Display Software (per computer)
- Thunderbolt Display Firmware Update (per display)

Here's an update: The Thunderbold Display user interface is broken.
I made sure all the software/firmware was up to date (now they both label the TD audio as USB, interestingly enough - was the shipped firmware with one of the devices newer than that on the web site???). On days when the Moon is full, the MBP comes out of hibernation with the only display on the computer, on cloudy days, the computer comes out of hibernation with the only display on the TD. From 10 minutes after the hour until quarter to the hour, both displays come up, but open Finder windows randomly are placed on one display or the other. On Thursday mornings, the icon locations on the desktop get shuffled like the display resolution was reduced to VGA and then restored. While both the TD and MBP audio and camera work and I can set either to be active, the system has a definite preference to use the TD for audio and camera (except that Facetime only wants to use the MBP audio).
Did Apple let Microsoft get their hands on this?
