Generally, noise is expressed in power.

Hence P=kTB is the most appropriate formula to base with.
It states that noise is proportional to temperature and bandwidth of operation (not the operation frequency).
In addition, the value of resistance is negligible.

Also on frequency of operation.

I agree @Naresh.

Noise should depend on resistance value as well as evident from the formula. Otherwise, there will be no difference between metals and non-metals.

If the resistance is high then heat dissipation also high. High heat will effect the signal also signal strength will be decreases.

V = square root (4 kTBR).

So, noise proportional to both R, T, B.

Noise is directly proportional to the bandwidth of a signal and absolute temperature.

Noise generated by resistors results from the motion of electrons within the resistor.

The noise power is proportional to the bandwidth.
Then, V = square root (4 kTBR).

Power losses is directly proportional to temperature increases.

As temperature increases energy of electrons increases, then random motion of electrons increases causing noise.

Because it has linear characteristics if noise created it would not effect resistor value.
