Is there a phonological reason an /i/ is added there?

Welsh plurals are not very predictable on the whole. It is best to look them up and learn them as you meet a new noun, along with its gender.

Lists of 'rules' for whether nouns take -au, -iau, -oedd, -ion, -iaid or any of the other 30-odd plural endings are usually followed by lists of exceptions, sometimes long enough to make the rule unhelpful.
