I gather it has to do with the firewall.

Yes.

The MAC address does not seem
to match any of the devices on the local network (which is small). Can
anyone tell me what it means and what I should do about it?

The log entry is incomplete, there should be data about the ports. That
would tell what it is about.

The message just says that there was a connection attempt that the
firewall rejected. Not important, unless you want that connection, or it
is so frequent that it becomes a nuisance.

SRC=fe80:0000... is a link local address.
