ok i have done some research into this and have some more information.
the twi_master_init function at
twi->ENABLE = TWI_ENABLE_ENABLE_Enabled << TWI_ENABLE_ENABLE_Pos; is where the device starts drawing the additional ~1.3mA of current.
I have tried to disable it after it is enabled but it won't go back to the original current draw after it has been enabled.
I am going to move forward with coding the rest of my project but I believe my solution, unless someone else has any suggestions, will be to utilize a software based i2c master this will avoid the weird hardware peripheral getting locked in an enabled state.
Thanks for reading.
