When I'm sniffing Zigbee traffic, is it possible to map those addresses to names so that instead of 0xa8c6 it would show for example Bedroom dimmer?

The mapping to "Broadcast" is hard coded (packet-ieee802154.c):

    if (ieee_802_15_4_short_addr == 0xffff)
        (void) g_strlcpy(buf, "Broadcast", buf_len);
        return 10;

There is an open issue (15487: Add ability to resolve EUI-64 MAC address via ethers file) that also discusses short names and includes a Lua post dissector to set names.
