Have a look at TCP checksum offloading :-)

In this trace, the dst mac is: Fortinet_10:67:9c (00:09:0f:10:67:9c)
In the other trace the src mac is: Fortinet_04:82:d4 (00:09:0f:04:82:d4)

Usually the mac addresses of devices are within a short range from
each other. This makes me believe your PC is behind a different
fortinet-device as where the fibre link connects to. Is that true?

How do the fortinet devices, CPE routers and L2 switches all connect
to each other?

That's your browser cache :-)
