I know that Heat can affect the formation of new sperm. But what about the mature semen cell? Can they get a dna damage from single heat exposure ?

In brief: No

how much heat and for how long, may be problematic, however testicles are placed outside the body to protect germinal cells from body heat , a natural mechanism, if you have a fertility problem, better see a fertility specialist for evaluation, it isn't only heat , other more risky factors are there, wish you well
