You have Cura in "Relative Extrusion" mode.

These are the first few lines around Layer:0:


G92 E0 ...................................................Reset the Extruder location                                           
M83 ;relative extrusion mode
;MESH:300 box.stl
G0 F3000 X153.5 Y153.5 Z3
G1 F900 X446.5 Y153.5 E964.51129        First extrusion is 964mm.

G1 X446.5 Y446.5 E964.51129                  Succeeding extrusions of layer:0 are the same amount (Relative Mode)
G1 X153.5 Y446.5 E964.51129
G1 X153.5 Y153.5 E964.51129


The first layer is 3.0mm thick and succeeding layers are 3.5mm thick.  That is why the numbers are different for succeeding layers.  Those numbers work for 2.85 filament.  When I first looked I thought they were for a paste extruder (7mm nozzle?) but the volume numbers work out to a standard filament diameter(?).

If I might ask - what do you have going on there?
