Seems like a bug to me. My bets are on the deferred probe related

You can calculate the parallel resistor value of the weak internal
pull with the 1k external pull :) If the i2c line pulls are wrong
the signal quality won't match the spec and you will be getting
i2c bus errors. If you can read and write to the i2c chip, this
is not the issue.
