onlar geliyordular,
onlar
geliyorlardı.

Although "geliyordular" is correct, "geliyorlardı" is more natural. Prefer "geliyorlardı"

Yeah it looks like both of them work but why only for third person plural? Only a misuse of suffix can explain it. This misuse became common in time I guess.

It must have something to do with the double life of LAR as a plural marker and as a personal ending.

 

LAR looks confusingly innocent but learners be warned it is not.

Actually it is only for plural. In personal endings, it makes "o" (he/she/it) plural as "onlar"

for "o" singular there is no personal ending in "geliyor" (he is coming), when we make plural we add "-lar" to non-exist third singular pronoun. and the result "geliyorlar" (they are coming)

I think abla meant personal (what you are saying personal plural, onlar) and plural (kitaplar)..
