I put \x40\x00\x64\x6f\x62\x32 into a file and ran sha1 sum over it, and this is the result: $ sha1sum in1 d2fe19d3d33ab25c335e870328faa2306a92c65b *in1 which matches the string in your input data. So that string with the null byte is 100% correct for that hash. John does not handle null bytes in input words at all, and probably never will.
