Default Certain types of paint more prone to discoloration/staining?

So I have a fully finished heated attached workshop that was painted roughly 6 years ago. During that time it has seen dust, dirt and occasional cigar/cigarette smoke. It usually gets a thorough cleaning every 6 months to a year and also has a massive electrostatic/carbon air filter mounted to the ceiling but have noticed that the white self priming semi-gloss interior enamel (Behr Premium Plus) I used on the trim and doors has yellowed permanently over the years on the trim and doors.

The odd thing is the gray matte interior paint (don't know much more than that as it was left over paint from a friend), the white flat ceiling paint (Behr), the white matte primer? that came on one of the exterior doors I didn't paint and whatever gloss white paint came on the steel roll up door did not discolor at all.

I am now planning to repaint all of the trim and doors that had the interior trim paint on them this weekend but am wondering if there is a different paint I should be using that will not discolor in this fashion. Is it just because it is a semi gloss? Any help in understanding what is the best white semi-gloss paint I should be using in this environment for longevity is much appreciated.

Interesting side note I also noticed that some white plastics (i.e. wall sockets) permanently discolored but others did not (i.e. the plastic trim around the windows in the 2 exterior doors)

I choose the Behr Premium Plus cause at the time consumer reports had them rated as a best pick based on whatever testing they performed. Obviously not a longevity test. Any suggestions as to a better equivalent?
