The Source address is the local PC which is designated by the IP;

The Destination is the MultCast address of;

If you are a newbie, I don't understand why to would block uPnP on a PC.  I can understand why you may block it on a Border Gateway or Router or are using Smart Ethernet Switch (aka; Managed Switch) and want to filter LAN activity.

It is a Local Area Network (LAN) protocol address being a MultiCast address so you may want your Notebook/Laptop to communicate with other LAN nodes using SSDP.  But you don't want the Internet accessing it and that why one may want to block it on a Border Gateway or Router so there is no Wide Are Network (WAN or Internet)  to LAN SSDP activity.

There are many LAN devices such as SmartTV's and  Roku that use SSDP.
