I also think only the captain has an assigned yeoman that handles his or her personal items (like momentos). Everyone else has to pick up their own personal stuff that might have been knocked loose from a desk or a shelf.
Doesn't Chakotay say something like 'besides, I left my quarters a mess', in Timeless, suggesting that he would have no such person ? And he was a first officer ...
It would fit with the TOS-era idea of "the captain's yeoman" being something of a personal butler as well as a secretary.
