The Chinese have a term for it which doesn’t translate well, but is effectively “bedtime revenge procrastination” 報復性熬夜, it’s when people who don’t have control in their life, put off sleep as a means of regaining some semblance of control. Basically self harm.

I like that phrase, but I don’t see it as self-harm. It’s not the healthiest way to do it but taking time for yourself is ok and necessary
