If you run the imagebuilder without any "PACKAGES=xxx", it will generate
an image with the default packages for that device, kernel/drivers for
its integrated hardware, uci, ssh, firewall, ppp and ipv6 functionality
The image generated is similar to what you get in a LEDE development
The "PACKAGES=xxx" option is there for including something on top of
that, or removing some of the default-selected packages (like the ones
for ipv6 support/firewall/whatever, for example).
Will edit the wiki page to add this info.
