Hi Sahil,
The packets produced by wireguard are simple ip packets containing a udp header which together specify the ip address and udp port number the packet should be handed to. Wireguard is listening on that port and receives the full ip packet. The contents of the udp part inside it are a special security header (specially designed for wireguard) plus encrypted data of original ip packet.
So no ESP, AH, or anything devised in the past. It uses a special header, custom made for wireguard. Head over to wireguard.com if you want to know more about the protocol.
Saeid,

If we go in the history? of tunneling protocols.
PPP protocol get tunnel by PPTP using GRE tunneling protocol.
L2F by CISCO uses L2F header.
L2TP by Microsoft uses L2TP header.
IPSec uses either ESP,AH or combination of both depending on kind of
security required then attach the other IP header.

So I was wondering if there is some header between IPv4 and IPv6 which
define some control information about tunneled packet.
Or just IPv6 just after IPv4 header and vice versa.

Is there any tool which helps to study the effect on using WireGuard VPN on
different OS(including embedded)?

Could you elaborate on this question?

WireGuard encapsulates v4 and v6. It _is_ the tunneling protocol.

Is there any specific tunneling protocol is used in WireGuard?
