    There is pretty much no legitimate reason that a site from the internet should access the local network.

    The only exception I’ve seen to this is Synology having a NAS finder webapp where it searches your local network for a Synology device and tells you the IP address. But that’s a tiny niche use case and there are other ways of finding it that doesn’t involve a website (the device broadcasts its identity and has a hostname FFS). Any open source IP scanner will find it instantly, or in many networks you can just type in the hostname into your browser like a domain.
