Seems to me -

This "folded back" discussion needs to specify BARE wire wrapped.  If you
are not using bare wire and wrap the folded back section, things will change
(I suspect the change would be less if you electrically connect the end of
the folded back section back to the antenna but this will be  a pain when
trying to tune).
