I think some people get confused with rapt and wrapped up.

Rapt is enraptured, enchanted, carried away from reality.

Wrapped up in something is enfolded, surrounded - and metaphorically it means you are in your own little "bubble", so focussed on what you are doing you are not paying attention to anything around you.

Completely different words. There just happens to be a vague similarity in meaning and a coincidence in them being homophones.

Rapt - from Latin rapio. I seize. Abduct.
English
rapt, enraptured, rapture
rapacious
raptor (eg dinosaur, bird of prey)

Wrap -
Origin not clear but similar to Germanic words for turn, wind, fold.
