Does this mean anything more than that a number of people happened to highlight that phrase?

Yes (edit: I mean, yes, only that, nothing more; time for bed (o: ), and that you have the feature to see those popular highlights turned on. If they irritate you, you can turn the feature off somewhere in settings.

I saw this feature on my KK and really liked it. But so far I don't see it as an option for my fire. Does it work with the Fire?

Brian, here is a web page that explains that on the Fire -

Edit - I was able to find more info. Sharing highlights is not available on the fire. From here -

Just to explain this a bit more:

Popular highlights are one of several types of things that Amazon adds to an e-book...they aren't part of the file that comes from the publisher. It actually downloads a separate file (with an extension of PHL, for Popular Highlights). Since the Kindle Fire uses a different folder structure than an RSK (Reflective Screen Kindle...anything other than a Kindle Fire), it's not as easy to integrate those features as might be supposed. Doesn't mean it won't happen, but I thought you might be interested in a bit of the technical behind-the-scenes stuff. :)"
