I saw ARP requests coming from the router and asking for the MAC of several other IPs of the same segment where my laptop was connected (in my case, 192.168.9.x). I didn't catch any ARP responses...

You are not supposed to catch them. ARP requests ("Who is x.x.x.x? Tell yy:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy") are broadcasted, but replys ("x.x.x.x is xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx") are not. The host with the IP will answer only to the host that generated the query.
