You must be right.
I just read this on crypt(3) man page a few days ago:
The glibc2 version of this function has the following additional fea-
tures. If salt is a character string starting with the three charac-
ters "$1$" followed by at most eight characters, and optionally termi-
nated by "$", then instead of using the DES machine, the glibc crypt
function uses an MD5-based algorithm, ...
but I did not make any effort to research the origin of md5 password
