    It's a Samsung thing. I can't really recall where the settings are exactly, but it's a shortcut menu for apps you choose. I believe that if you tap and hold on it you can eventually drag it to a trash can or an X to make it go away. You can re-enable/disable in the Settings if you want it back.

    I keep it around on my tablet but make it go away on my phone. On the Note 5, however, they implemented it differently (it's more integrated with S-Pen features)

    I think it's the Toolbox setting...can be disabled.

    I can assure you it's NOT a Lollipop thing. That does look like a Toolbox floating icon, so either the S6 has it (not sure, I don't own one) or you have an app installed that's emulating it.

    As for this happening to 'all samsung S6 users', well... don't think I've seen any reports of that. I'd try to boot into Safe Mode (this disables all 3rd party apps from auto-launching at boot) and see if it happens. If it does, it's a system thing and you should contact your carrier (they might have baked this in into the system, I'm almost sure this isn't a thing in 'pure' Samsung unless the Toolbox option is there to be disabled). If it doesn't, then you know it's an app that's causing it.

    Actually, I have seen it in some of my apps as well. The one that it appears in all the time is Home Run Battle 3D. Have seen it in other ones as well. It would be nice if we could remove it.

    I'm pretty sure it's an Android thing. It's meant to be a way to access settings in old legacy apps since the dedicated menu button was discontinued.
