You can use your regular account to import lists if you have normal access to the Lead Database.
By default leads created or imported into Marketo remain "Marketo only" unless the program is syncronised with a Salesforce campaign or a trigger "Lead is Created" includes a flow step "Sync to SFDC".
Opening the Activity Log of one of those imported leads would reveal a triggered campaign if there is one pushing new leads to Salesforce. Program Actions will display whether it is synchronised with a Salesforce campaign.Sync Lead to SFDCHow the "Sync Lead to SFDC" Flow Action Works

I have excluded list imports in my salesforce sync campaign for this purpose. If they need to be synced after importing I can select all leads and request the sync manually.
Thank you for your responses. I was able to receive help from an employee over the phone which was great. I will keep your replies in mind if I need it in the future.
For anyone else seeking the answer to this, what had happened to me is that we had previously had an active trigger campaign that was syncing all uploaded leads into Salesforce. The gentleman on the phone helped me identify which campaign this was and how to exclude my send.
All I needed to do was create a filter in that Smart List which excluded the list I was about to upload. So you'll need to create the list name, insert the filter in Smart List for the trigger campaign, Create a program to affiliate the list with and then upload the leads.
How do you exclude list imports in the SF sync campaign? thanks!
Hi Erin, I have centralized the Sync in a single campaign which can be requested. So no direct syncs in other locations. After a while it becomes difficult to manage what goes to SF. In that centralized campaign it's easy to either add smartlist filters. This would prevent the sync campaign from even starting. Or you use options in the flow steps. This way you can add notifications on the syncs.
So everything else syncs except list imports for you?
That's one of the things yes.
