When running a DRC check in PCBnew, I get a host of ErrType Pad near pad errors for non-copper layers. Why would I care about non-copper layers?

Maybe your silk print is on the pad, which is no good for production. So some fabs will ignore, some not. As a rule, there should be no silk print on pad. So the DRC flag pad near pad for non-copper layers.

I guess they're for solder masks or paste masks where you have minimum distances to obey.

I am not clear of the identification of the part in your question. Could you give us more information?

I think that squawk is telling you there is a clearance problem between Pads, and that the two pads are defined in some non-copper layers as well as the top trace layer.
