Alas, the machine with my copy of INN-current on it is down right now, but if 
I remember correctly, there's an option named something like "storeonxref"
that forces the storage manager to make its decision on storage based on
the Xref: line instead of Newsgroups:.  You probably need to set this to
true, since "junk" is one of those funny cases like control.* where the
article gets "stored" elsewhere than its original newsgroup, so the
Newsgroups: line would say what the original newsgroup was and Xref: would
say junk.
