Is it possible for you to show us some screen shots from your tableau server permission on the web browser?
Initially it seems to me like your publisher user is being granted permissions in another place. Potentially the all users group.
It would also help if you could clarify where the other data sources are. Are they all located in the same project? Or are they in different projects? If they are in different projects, we would need to see the permissions settings for those projects as well.

Ok. So it looks like the All Users group is going to be the key to your problem then. When you grant all users permissions to the project, your publisher users is included in that. Putting them in the other group, doesn't remove them from all users. They will always be in that group.
So in order to restrict that user from seeing multiple data sources, you would have to find another way to provision your other users. Likely creating a new group for all users except your publisher would work, if your goal is to have all other users with access.
Then you would need to give your publisher users only permissions to that one data source and not the entire project. If you granted them access to the project, and pushed that permissions to contents, it would still allow them to see all the data sources in the project.
I hope this helps
It would be really helpful if you can show me an example.
