Hi Magnus,

draft-ietf-tsvwg-rfc4960-bis contains in Section 2.3:

   SCTP packet (or packet):  The unit of data delivery across the
      interface between SCTP and the connectionless packet network
      (e.g., IP).  An SCTP packet includes the common SCTP header,
      possible SCTP control chunks, and user data encapsulated within
      SCTP DATA chunks.

This gives the definition: every chunk which is not a DATA chunk is a control chunk.
But I can make it explicit and add entries in Section 2.3.

Best regards
Michael
