they are not a way to group regions particularly, although they can
serve that role in a rather crude way. they are intended to save
selections made with the range tool. drag to select some range(s), right
click on the selection to save what you selected as a "chunk".

you can later paste entire chunks at the edit cursor (and some day,
perhaps, drag-n-drop them). 

not sure of the ardour2 status - please test and let us know.

best to think of "chunks" as akin to "the bridge", or "the verse", or
"the bit where it all slows down" etc etc etc
