This seems very abnormal to me. Over 70GB is being used by Media Storage. I am unable to to clear this or manage it in any way, it just seems to be wrecking my storage.

Any ideas what could be causing this or how to fix it?

Is it a clean install or you copied files from previous phone ?

It could be you're recent deleted files in gallery app at the bottom maybe try to "clean"

You can install Google Files Go from the playstore to easily manage you're storage

I used the OnePlus tool to transfer from a previous phone.

None of this stuff is even visible in Google Files Go. Is there no way to clear this app data?

Its showing 25gb for me. Photos and videos are getting counted separately. This is confusing. Why media storage is having that much amount.

It looks correct to me. It does say User Data, which means your data installed. Apps, games photos and videos.
It appears to be in addition to all those though. See screens.
