Yes, NFC is on, but there is absolutely no reason why having NFC on should cause that issue, otherwise it would be completely useless. I have always kept NFC on, and it's only in this most recent iteration of PA that I have started seeing this issue. If that's a legitimate issue within PA 3.96, then fine, I can revert to a different ROM and that's fine.
At some point after I originally posted this, Mediaserver stopped acting up, and my battery stabilized around the 77% mark without any intervention from me. I am extremely confused here, but more and more convinced it's time to go back to stock so that I can at least get back to a usable device again. Makes me a little sad because there are lots of very cool features in PA, particularly the per-app DPI, per-app color, and PIE / fullscreen mode.
