If you launch a image build without any PACKAGES= set you will see what 
are the default packages in the first lines of the output, see the 
following example:

$ make image PROFILE="wt3020-8M"

Building images for ramips - Nexx WT3020 (8MB)
Packages: base-files busybox dnsmasq dropbear firewall fstools ip6tables 
iptables kernel kmod-gpio-button-hotplug kmod-leds-gpio kmod-mt76 
kmod-rt2800-pci kmod-rt2800-soc libc libgcc logd mtd netifd odhcp6c 
odhcpd opkg ppp ppp-mod-pppoe swconfig uci uclient-fetch wpad-mini

[and then it starts downloading packages]
