One of the privacy properties of BIP32 is that given two public keys (or even private keys), you cannot even tell whether they were generated from the same xpub or two distinct xpubs. This implies you certainly can't tell their index.

BIP 32 does not derive addresses but derives a series of private keys from which corresponding addresses are then calculated. So there are multiple layers of obfuscations here that would make the index recalculation impossible. First, Bitcoin addresses do not reveal anything about the associated private key (ECC and hash protected) and second, the private ...

The industry standard for this conversion of mnemonic to seed is documented in BIP 39 and most wallets follow that method. The seed is then passed to HMAC-SHA512 to get a master extended private ...
