Do soy beans take longer to cook than white or kidney?

I have a new crockpot. I make boston baked beans using a very simple, classic recipe and found that the beans did not cook in time. I cook them for a bit more than 8 hours. I used soy beans instead of the typical navy, white or kidney. I am wondering - do soy beans take longer to cook than other beans? or perhaps my slow cooker is just a tad slower than others? I used dried beans, put them in water first, brought the water to boiling and then let them sit covered for more than an hour before I used them.

Soybeans are not classic. Most recipes call for dry navy beans to be soaked overnight in cold water as a first step. Did you soak your beans overnight? If not, that could be your problem.

So it seems that soaking the beans allows them to soften and let the flavor of the molasses, brown sugar, mustard, etc to seep into the bean? Is that the chemistry?

You're joking, right?
