Yes, I don't think CHDK has anything to do with the camera's playback mode.  When you make an exposure, then review the image in playback mode to check exposure, focus, etc, the histogram with the image appears to be a luminance histogram.  I say this only because it appears very close to the luminance histogram of the same image viewed in Photoshop Elements.  CHDK settings, of course, only affect the Live Histogram, when the camera is in record mode.

Nope. CHDK histogram shows in that mode which you choose in the menu. In both playback and record mode. You can check it by enabling Y_RGB histogram.
For example:

(Playback mode. The large one is luminance). See the differences?

GrAnd, on my A620, the playback mode shows the pictures taken, and by hitting the display button you get the choices of three displays, one of which shows a histogram of the image, along with shutter speed, f-stop, white balance, etc.  Changing CHDK Live Histogram options doesn't appear to change that histogram display.

no, it does not change the review histogram in any way, that's generated by the original firmware.
the liveview histogram is generated by chdk

Now I'm confused again...

So the histogram you see before taking the picture is from CHDK, but the one seen in playback is from the Canon firmware. Is that correct? ???

yes, the playback histogram (when you use detailed view) works without chdk too
