Preheat a grill to medium and brush the grates with vegetable oil. Combine the fennel seeds, 1 teaspoon salt, the red pepper flakes and bay leaves in a spice grinder and pulse until powdery. Toss with the pork, rosemary and garlic in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 4 hours.
Thread the fennel, figs and pork onto eight 10-inch skewers; set aside. Mix the honey, olive oil and lemon juice in a small bowl. Grill the kebabs, turning occasionally, until marked and cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes, brushing with the honey mixture during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Drizzle with olive oil before serving.
