You have a point, maybe the lens is building up static electricity when zoom or focus rings slide (rubber or plastic) rubbing on glass or other insulating surface, and this is not discharging through the mount but accumulating on the front glass or filter. The high potential could be attracting dust.

Do you have a cat? Maybe hold the lens close and see if the cat hairs get attracted to it.

Thank you for at least taking me seriously.

Actually, we have no animals. I literally just took off the lens cap and the front element was full of dust again. I have a Staticmaster brush/anti-static thing, that I use to clear off negatives before I scan them.  I am using it on the lens to see if there will be less dust going forward.
