yes i’d say so,.
In general are you saying that's to many fan leaves to take off or to many for an Autoflower?

I'm growing photoperiods and did my first scrog on my current grow in the 8x4. I was not aggressive at all with it because I wanted to see how the plant reacted to the little bit I did do and also didn't want to screw anything up in general.

I defoliated everything under the net during veg. I did some research and seen that plenty of websites related to growing (not just forums) say to do a major defoliation of just about all the fan leaves on week 3 of flower.
I went ahead and took that advice and did a major defoliation 4 days ago. I was worried about doing it before I even did it and now I seen this and my fear is back.

I just didn't know if the websites that say to do a major defoliation on week 3 of flower was for photoperiods only or if it is simply bad advice that plagues the internet.

Well you found out that it did not work out well for Autos you grew, you tried something new and it did not work out but that's how you learn.
I've made plenty mistakes myself trying new things, I've also found some pretty neat and beneficial techniques as well along the way and so will you!

Like I said before, I did a heavy defoliation in week 3 of flower but mine are photoperiods. I'm at 5 weeks now and so far I'm liking what I see but I still have a long way to go before I know if it hurts my yield.

First go around for outdoors. If I learned anything from my indoor grows is that you defoliate the lower levels but still need leaves for photosynthesis which is vital. I’m doing lst so they are small to be a month old. But the lower nodes are growing and the stem is getting thick.

Have you tired 2 units running at the same time or 1 in lung room and 1 in tent?
You could always try a basement/whole house dehumidifier.

Have you made sure your hygrometer is giving accurate readings?

Do you water in morning or night? If you water toward the end of day, it will raise humidity quite a bit the next day.

What's the humidity in the rest of your house compared to your grow space?

Might have to try and seal off the grow area the best you can from the rest of the house, hard to dehumidify a room that's getting supplied with humid air from other parts of the house.
Could try and put dehumidifiers in the rooms closest to your grow area/lung room while also running dehumidifier in your grow area/lung room.

Another thing you could try is dehumidifier bags or buckets, these are put in boats, cars, etc when they are stored for a long time so they can absorb moisture.
