I'm not certain what your question is. I'm assuming is not the IP address of the system you are running the tcpdump on and you are questioning why is asking everyone in earshot to respond if they have that IP address.

This is something that Microsoft, not normally known for innovation, actually implemented a long time ago. That system is probably just initializing its IP stack and is looking to see if someone is already using the IP address it would like to use.

Linux now does that too, I believe.

If that's not your question then this is not your answer, so restate. Thanks.
