} Sorry, it's probably silly question, but what is then purpose of 'j'

innd uses this as if this group does not exist.
Namely, rest of newsgroups that don't have 'j'
are used for newsfeeds.  So, it doesn't mean
article will be stored into junk explicitly.

} As I understand this means that article will be propagated to sites
} receiving 'junk' group and if I don't feed junk to a site, then posts

You cannot use 'j' for this purpose.  It's
necessary to specify patterns in newsfeeds
for that.
