Thanks for the reply! :)
If that is true, is this behavior generally illegal?

No one is obligated to abide the various specifications of the Internet.

What should I say to my ISP?

How should I know?

Any further help will be appreciated!

So, what you're saying is that my ISP is acting as a Firewall.

I said it _might be_ managing connections similar to a firewall. The
intent is very different. A firewall manages connections to prevent
illicit packets from being received. What they are trying to do is
reduce traffic on a very costly link in the network.
