Maybe not more susceptible but white certainly shows a stain more.

Sometimes its another colour that bleeds onto it when it gets packed away wet, light blue and red Icarex will do this. Some softer rubber connectors can leave a stain usually on older kites, sometimes it can be carbon near the upper spreader wear patch.

If its something like oil picked from your flying site you can sometimes remove most of it with a solvent, detergent or I've seen dry cleaning fluid recommended (but never tried it myself). Sadly Icarex colour bleed is almost impossible to remove but will fade a little given time.

Bridle lines also can cause stains as sometend to bleed when they get wet/damp.
