New or old wood, and several instances. Never had this problem before. It is the paint so no more comments from BM representatives please.Mould spore need to be killed before re-painting. Not the paint's fault.
Mold is a living organism, and will come thought the paint film repeatedly until eradicated (mild solution of bleach and water about 1 part bleach to 10 parts water should do it).

So true! I do a few houses by the lake here. And the shady sides of the million dollars cottages as the people call them or the “ Cabin” all 5,000 sg ft of it. Always has some sort of mould. And I see newbies arriving and slapping on a coat of paint or solid stain and then trying to blame it on the product the customer choose not the forgotten prep job,Lol, if you were on here at all you know I don’t even use BM paints.
It is precisely the reason painters need to pressure wash and treat for mildew prior to painting (aside from removing the dust film).
Mold thrives in moist, shady locations ( under large overhangs, sides of house shaded by trees, the north side of house, etc..). Mold can live on paint surfaces, and will come through if not removed prior to painting. You can add a mildewcide additive into the paint. That might help if you did not clean prior to painting (which you obviously didn’t).
