From the LAN side or WAN side?

the majority of this is legit dropped traffic.  Doesn't match an allow
rule on the WAN side so it gets dropped.

No, ng0 is your real WAN interface, since you're using PPPoE.  rl0
shouldn't see any traffic from the internet.  Looks to me like you
have Windows boxes plugged in outside your firewall, between the WAN
and the DSL modem?  Or else your provider does something weird that
lets NetBIOS broadcasts come to you, and not through PPPoE.

All this 169.254.x.x and 10.x.x.x garbage is Windows NetBIOS
broadcasts.  That's all that is coming in rl0.

The only legit traffic I see getting dropped is by rule @200:1.  What
rule is that?  See

My first guess, since it's a relatively small number of drops, is
this.  http://m0n0.ch/wall/docbook/faq-legit-traffic-dropped.html  
And the refresh issue being unrelated.
