Default Painting over Alkyd paints

Looked at a cabinet job. The job was already started and they used Behr Alkyd semi-gloss. I don't want to use that paint and want to use my go to cabinet paint "Kelly Moore Dura Poxy". I haven't encountered this on a repaint before so my question is do I need to prime prior to repainting or just a simple scuff sand and clean. I would think that would be fine, but just thought I'd run it by everyone in case someone has encountered this before.

Had they primed prior to putting the alkyd on? Is it a waterbased or oil based alkyd? Are they new cabinets? If not what is the finish on them now?
