I have not done any kind of testing, but have been under the impression for a while that certain color temps seem to generate, or be more susceptible to noise. Incandescent for example.

I know incorrect exposure impacts noise, but has anyone else found that certain lighting seems to impact noise differently?

Maybe it's that WB if it's off far enough has an impact on correct exposure, which in turn impacts noise?

Does anyone have any answers or thoughts? I don't have any examples, just something I have been thinking about as I have read threads on noise over the years at various forums.
