The RBC and UKQCD Collaborations have generated a number of coarse ensembles with 2+1 flavors of Mobius Domain Wall Fermions (MDWF) and physical quark masses using the Iwasaki plus Dislocation Suppressing Determinant Ratio (DSDR) action. Previous work has shown small $O(a^2)$ scaling violations for pseudoscalar decay constants, various masses and Wilson flow scales. In this talk, we present results for $B_K$ and $\Delta I = 2$ $K \to \pi \pi$ matrix elements on these lattices and compare these to continuum limit results obtained for 2+1 flavor lattices with the Iwasaki gauge action. The scaling of these matrix elements will help to determine the utility of measuring $\Delta I = 0$ $K \to \pi \pi$ matrix elements on lattices as coarse as $1/a = 1$ GeV.
