Are y-dna haplogroups really that irrelevant and insignificant?

I heard that they can be only used to determine your paternal lineage but even so that's insignificant because it only makes up only a small fraction of your dna namely 2%

It's only the autosomals and mtDNA that determine what you are and who you are.

If the ydna doesn't influence anything why are haplogroups studied then? Does each haplogroup contribute to its distinct phenotype characteristics. I heard somewhere that R1b people have more oval shaped heads compared to i1 which have more square faces.

What do y DNA haplogroups influence in terms of looks or behaviour? Nothing at all?
