You have a mistaken understanding of the master. It is a bus where all audio 
is routed to, not a track containing audio files. 
That is why there are no waveforms displayed in the masterbus in the editor.To 
export you can send the output of the master-bus to a file using the 
export-session menu.

If you want the master as a track inside ardour, you have to create a new 
audio track (stereo or mono or however many channels you need). 
You can then route the out of the master to the inputs of that track.
Make sure that the output of the track is _not_ connected to the masterbus.
Rec enable the track and bounce your session to a mastertrack. 
You could also route each of your tracks seperately of course, but that is a 
lot of hassle.

Alternatively you can import your mastered track into ardour as well, and just 
put it in a track.

hope this helps
