So if I host 10 domains, it doesn't automatically mean they'll all be on one IP address - but they all share a chance of being assigned to the same IP (maybe 2% chance, 10% chance, 30% chance, etc) right?

I wouldn't even say that. The assignment of domains to IPs is not random, but it's not entirely predictable either. It's not unlikely that a bunch of sites created at the same time will end up with the same IP addresses as one another, due to the way we assign them internally, but that may (or may not) change later on, especially if you are moved to another machine or if we have to rebalance the sites on your machine.

Bottom line: If you care about what IP addresses your sites have, give them unique IPs. Otherwise, we make no guarantees.
