The transaction 0xd0820f45ddc180231076a9b28f73f8d124ab296ad7cc7c87c745e0d44a461595 in block #124627591 paid a ~34ETH transaction fee. Why? Does this have to do with the number of contract self destructs?

Furthermore, the entire block paid ~93ETH in transaction fees. A few other transactions (6ETH, 11ETH, 10ETH) also paid, what seems to be, exorbitantly high transaction fees. They all also seem to include multiple contract self destructs.

Does this have to do with the number of contract self destructs?

No. Those are Gas Token (GST2) contract self-destructs, used to bring down the net gas cost for the overall transaction.

paid a ~34ETH transaction fee. Why?

The gas price was set to 78,000 Gwei(!).

Why would they submit a transaction with such a high gas price? To increase the likelihood of it being included in a block. Why?

From looking at the transaction flow, I think they were trying to avoid having a large leveraged position liquidated by the rapid drop in prices yesterday...
