If we have an existing DDB on a drive for a media agent and that drive gets encrypted with Bitlocker does that cause a problem?
My thought is that it isn’t since all reads/writes are happening inside the server. There might be a performance penalty though.
Or am I totaly wrong?

Bitlocker is enabled per drive/volume, and given DDBs should be on dedicated drives, there should be no reason to enable bitlocker on a DDB volume - there is nothing you could determine by dumping out the DDB contents.
I’m not sure we have tested or seen bitlocker on a DDB volume before - but some level of performance impact is certain. If its not impacting production and Q&I times are OK then I guess there is no need to worry about it
