So I may have fixed it. I can't be 100% sure yet as I haven't ridden the highway, but a lap around the block and it seems straight now. I loosened just the upper yoke, and gave the bars a couple tweaks and bounces, tightened those and then did the bottom again/front wheel installation procedure and it seems to be straight now. I also spun each of the fork legs 180 degrees inside the yokes and they didn't bind up at all and it made no difference to the alignment.

If it nicely tracks straight with the bars centred, then it sounds as though you got away with it.
In addition to what the others have already covered, also keep in mind that IN GENERAL re conventional forks with lower legs (non USD):
Fork tubes bend before triples do.
Fork tubes first bend somewhere below the triples.
(where they bend can be a real mystery, but it will be above the upper bushing's position on the fork tube at the instant the energy input occurred)
Fork tubes bent between the triples is consistent with major to severe incidents.
Fork assemblies with tubes lubricated for easier fitting into the triples, are more likely to twist, than those fitted dry into triples that have good bores "showing" lots of contact area, and are properly torqued.
Forks are best V blocked and dialled to check straightness.
Proper checking dictates numerous tests with the V blocks in different positions.
First is end / end.
Second is where the two triples rest.
Third depends on what the first two reveal and/or suggest.
Even rolling a bare fork tube on a good flat kitchen counter will reveal significant bends.
(but not small ones that will very much be problematic re bushings and seal wear)
Fork tube straightening is an art type skill.
Some are real maestros at it.
Others are hackers.
I think it's in the same league as really good built up crank shaft builders.
