I am sure I'm not blocking the ping at my (UDM Pro) firewall, but the Fritz!box also has a firewall.

Because I see the weird hop outbound, I assumed I would see it on inbound, and thus it appeared to be the next hop to fix.
However, no small amount of dorking about with the Fritz!Box has resulted in me figuring out that I need to designate the UDM as "exposed host".

I know I should have more faith in the Unifi firewall, and I should have been happy to put the UDM into the DMZ, but I always felt marginally less insecure leaving it so that the mystical, inaccessible Fritz!box firewall was also preventing rogue SYNs from molesting my sockets.

Once I enable "Exposed Host" on the Fritz, pings work, and "mtr" is able to reveal to me that there is no hop inbound.  Just outbound.

The bogon hop still annoys me -- perhaps I need to get a life.
