It's probably just a silly math error I did. The calculator actually figures out the amount to add per gallon then calculates out to the mash and boil. I goofed on the boil calculation it seems. I mash with my full water amount (BIAB no-sparge) so I never even used that number. I don't use the calculator at all now since I bought a ph meter. I had the typical over "minerally" beer before I simplified and followed aj's advice.
No sparge, no chill, no MLT, no HLT, no propane, no worries...
