Thanks for the feedback. The color yellow has been removed altogether as a layer color, and has been replaced by Magenta color for Layer 5. This functionality is available in our latest release build – 24.1.1 for Win and 24.1 for Mac which is available worldwide now.
What’s new in 24.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/whats-new.html

Thank you for all the feedback.

I like the range of layer colors from light to dark in the options, but it's annoying that I can not set 1 layer color in my preferences in AI. It sucks that everytime I draw on a layer with a black outline that the auto selected layer colors are black, dark purple, dark blue etc. It would be cool to program AI to auto select contrasting layer colors for light stroke/fill or a dark stroke/fill paths.
