I'm the culprit here. I did start a couple of UDM measurements with large packet-sizes to try and provide some data from what RIPE Atlas sees when sending fragmented packets (this is a discussion on the NANOG-list currently), and apparently your probe is one of the cases it caught (though the log message doesn't specify if it blocked the fragments or not).
