Basically, this printer will randomly print out 3 sheets of paper with the below information on each one. It's probably wasted like 60 pages over the course of a year printing these arbitrarily. Each of the sheet has the text printed in Courier New at the top of the page and the rest is blank.
The printer is connected wirelessly to my network on an Orbi Router with a 1 gig fiber connection.

@alkah3st Welcome to HP Community!
I understand that the printer keeps printing IP addresses.
Please try to restore the network settings.
Please try to connect the printer wired network and check.
Please try to update the firmware and check.
Please refer to the below link on how to update the firmware.
Keep us posted,

I checked for a firmware update, but the printer found no new updates.
I reset the Network Settings and reconnected to the wireless network.
Unfortunately I can't connect to a wired connection given my setup.
I'll update if it still prints these pages.

From the Start menu click the gear icon and select Devices, then click Printers & Scanners.
Click your printer name once and then click Manage.
Click Printer Properties and open the Advanced tab, what is the exact printer driver listed under the Driver drop-down menu?

Despite the changes we made, it's still arbitrarily printing these test pages.
I wish I could stop it. I have half a mind to keep it with no paper at all times until I print, but when I put paper back in, it'll likely print these before I print what I actually intend to.

I've never heard of or seen this issue before. Very odd. The best suggestion I have would be to delete the current printer driver, download the latest available driver, reboot your computer, then install the printer with the new driver.
You might also check to see if there's a newer version of firmware for your printer and update it as well.

Yeah, I've done all of these things:
-deleted the printer from all machines
- uninstalled the drivers
- went into the printer itself and set to factory conditions
- made sure the latest firmware is installed
- reinstalled the printer on my machine with the latest drivers from HP
It still periodically prints out the pages described here, unprompted, at least several times a week, 3 pages at a time.

Very odd. A couple of thoughts:
1. It may be coming from the router and not your computer or driver.
2. Maybe some other device on the network is sending connection verification data to this address thinking it's a different kind of device like a computer or something that would normally respond or just process the data, but since it's a printer it's being printed instead.
