Default Questions about encrypt local passwords

Questions about encrypt local passwords

Encrypt local passwords using method of encryption as described in login.conf(5).
If method is ``auto'', the encryption type will be derived from the user's login class.

Does is means that by default passwords local stores using the system s / key ?

Which algorithm is used by system s/key the md4 or the md5?
