I have 55 databases installed on my sql server dedicated to sharepoint.  
First of all I want to ask why in the heck are there so many databases but I will save that for later.

is there any reason besides point of time recovery for these databases to be in full recovery mode.
All of them are.

I'd like to put them in simple recovery mode but am unsure of the nature of how sharepoint uses these dbs

Hi,
55 dbs is a lot, but it depends on what features and services you have installed and configured and how many web apps and site collections with each own content dbs you have been created.
By default they are all set to full recovery mode - used to have the ability to restore to a specific time.
A good SharePoint db overview:
