The toner itself doesn't (it's just plastic powder). However, a lot of
toner cartridges contain rubberised wiper-blades, rubberised rollers, and
photosensitive elements that do have a limited shelf life.
$ork[-1] had a couple of Very Large Xerox printers. Toner for them came
in gigantic bottles which would likely last for decades in storage without
ill-effect (provided moisture isn't introduced, etc.).
