We have learned in school that displacement current comes about due to a change in electric field flux per time in a capacitor (Ampere-Maxwell Law). Does the same displacement current come about in an inductor for the same reason?

Whenever electric field or polarization changes in time, the displacement current is present. If electric current in wire that makes up the inductor changes in time, electric field will change as well and there will be displacement current.
