No, you have to specify the rules to use, and then it will use those in the
conf file.
--rules=single will use the [List.Rules:Single] set. --rules=NT will use
the rules that do CamELcASe found in the john.conf file.
--rules=jumbo will do the 4 sets found in the  [List.Rules.Jumbo]
# For Wordlist mode and very fast hashes
[List.Rules:Jumbo]
.include [List.Rules:Wordlist]
.include [List.Rules:Single]
.include [List.Rules:Extra]
.include [List.Rules:NT]
