Except you're making assumptions as to how that router is used.

If it's being used for purely transit then your third paragraph doesn't
apply at all. The traffic is not originating or terminating there, it is
merely passing through.

And what are the ICMP packets doing on the net? They seem to be
originating from 1918 space. Nothing in the RFC says that ICMP does
not count.
