AFAIK, the main category of "junk DNA" refers to sequences that make up the chromatin "packaging" that wraps round the actual genes most of the time.


Nope -

[1] DNA alone never makes up chromatin packaging.
[2] Chromatin consists of histones in combination with DNA.
[3] Heterochromatin (which is highly compacted and wraps around silent DNA) does not wrap around genes.
