Yes, higher gloss finishes tend to highlight any surface imperfections.
If painting (not my first choice), I’d use either a Flat or a Matt "off" white* finish on overheads.
Ceilings are usually painted with a flat finish paint
Since matte finishes do not reflect as much light, they are good for hiding surface imperfections.
You could also select an eggshell finish if the surface of the ceiling is flawless.
Choose a slightly glossier finish, for good light reflection, & ease of cleaning
, only if the the overhead is perfect (no blemishes).
Generally satin, gloss or semi-gloss paints are reserved for trims.
