It’s not really surprising that the dividing line between “junk DNA” and “non-junk DNA” depends on how “functional DNA” is defined.  In this study, they looked at how much of the human genome has remained the same over the last 100 million years of mammalian evolution — i.e., how much of our genome is essential for mammalian survival and procreation.  It’s only about 8.2%.
