Yes, it's a FreeBSD-style MD5-based crypt(3) hash.

It's pretty much the same for any hash type supported by JtR:

$ echo 'x:$1$6ujiFow0$gjGySuCT6BCfPRmD2QtgS.' > pw
$ john pw
Loaded 1 password hash (FreeBSD MD5 [32/32])
pierre           (x)
guesses: 1  time: 0:00:00:00 100% (2)  c/s: 2390  trying: pierre

You do not need to specify the --format option for this one because it
is unambiguous to JtR as it is.  In general, you do not need to specify
this option with most hash types; there are only a few exceptions (such
as LM vs. NTLM vs. raw MD5).
