(Public) IP address [x.x.x.x] of Synology has been blocked by SSH


For the past few months I regularly see alerts on my Synology about SSH connection being blocked. Somebody (here a nice Chinese guy from 222.186.15.158) was attempting to connect to my NAS with the root account (Fortunately PermitRootLogin is disabled).

What I am a bit worried because if I see a public address here, it means my NAS is somehow reachable from the internet. However all ports are closed on my front router, NAT is disabled, DMZ is disabled.

When I try to nmap my router from the outside I get this :

$   nmap -Pn x.x.x.x  Starting Nmap 7.60 ( https://nmap.org ) at 2020-05-17 01:07 CEST Nmap scan report for x.x.x.x Host is up (0.012s latency). Not shown: 997 filtered ports PORT     STATE  SERVICE 113/tcp  closed ident 2000/tcp open   cisco-sccp 5060/tcp open   sip  Nmap done: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 8.23 seconds 

So there is no SSH entry point.

How would it be technically possible to see a public IPv4 address attempting to connect to my LAN NAS?
