In addition to what rboettcher said, have a look at where some of these intergenic regions are in relation to known/predicted repeats motifs, such as IAPs or LINES (there are repeatmasker tracks available). I suspect that a lot of these a just these repeat elements. Depending on the nature of your KO lines, these may or may not be functionally meaningful (there's a lot of transcriptional noise that never amounts to much of anything).
