The number of jobs specifies how many runs to be launched in parallel. You should be able to find more available values in drop-down menu.
The parameter specifies the maximum number of simultaneous threads to speed up processes.

Hi @toxup_1 ,
Have a look into this AR to understand the difference between number of jobs and multithreading of CPU cores. https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/60655.html
You will see how many CPU cores have been enabled for synthesis in synthesis log (runme.log).
If you have set maxthreads 8 then you will in the log as info message like - multithreading enabled for synth_design using a maximum of 8 CPUs.

@toxup_1 Which Vivado version are you using?
What does it say if you run "launch_runs synth_1 -jobs 4" in the tcl console?
