Is there anything to be gained by getting a full SSL cert from an 'authorized' vendor for a puppet master? IE Comodo, etc

No ... save your money and build yourself your own CA.

That's what I figured since it's all 'internal' anyway. Just curious.

i would say no, its not really worth it. However, if your organization already has a Certificate Authority system in place for internal use, you can use that existing CA chain for your Puppet CA.
