Does not seem so. I got the impression the later schemes doesn't use
crypt(3). Fwiw this page:

...tells that crypt-DES was actually used in OSX 10.0 - 10.2,
unshadowed. There are other interesting details on that page, like 10.3
storing LM and NT hashes apart from unsalted SHA-1 by default (while the
later versions only do so if you turn Windows file sharing on).
