How are you bringing the notes in? I'm not at all familiar with DR's cutnotes so I just went and took a quick look at the product. Are you using XML or ... what?

Yes. The procedure with premiere is export xml of the timeline, use the dr
marker import tool to modify the xml file to include the notes and then
reimport the xml back into the project at which point a bunch of duplicate
files (new master clips) get brought in with the newly updated marked up
timeline.

I think this is what the "productions" workflow is designed to fix.  Haven't used it myself, but worth some searching here and on the adobe website and some general googling.   I'm going to be investigating this over the next few weeks with a friend who wrangles complex projects with multiple editors and is frustrated by exactly this behavior.    But in the meantime, why not just move the duplicate media to a folder that you never need to look at...

mgrenadier has a good suggestion for the future ... the Productions workflow, as the way that is designed you never get the duplicated assets mess, and especially ... large projects are never seen by the computer as a large project so they load and run much faster. Yet all assets of the Production are available in all projects within that Production without duplicating ... without loading tons of data to cache/RAM ...

So I created a Production, brought my project file into it and tried to
bring in a batch of notes on another timeline and the problem persists,
more new master clips.

If you're getting master clip duplicates, then the Production isn't fully "seeing" that project file. I'm presuming you used the 'add project to production' option?
