I want to have uniform highlighting of line numbers (provided by the LineNr and CursorLineNr hl-groups) but the line numbers of folded lines don't obey a particular group (as far as I know), but obey the highlighting of the Folded group.

As you can see in the image of my ~/.vimrc file, the line-numbers of unfolded lines are bold with yellow foreground; while the line-numbers of folded lines are regular with white foreground (the same configuration of the rest of the folded line).

Example of irregular line-number color of folded lines

So, how can I make the folded-lines' number become equal of the rest of the LineNr column?

    This is not possible. The whole line belongs to the Folded highlight group.
