I have never seen any doc or typography guideline that favors
a quotation mark over an apostrophe for English contractions,
possessives, or non-word plurals.

Section 6.2 of the Unicode Standard states:

U+2019 right single quotation mark is preferred where the character is to represent a punctuation mark, as for contractions: “We’ve been here before.” In this latter case, U+2019 is also referred to as a punctuation apostrophe.
