2 Questions:

  1. In your opinion who is full-stack web developer ?
    Like he should know Data Structures, Javascript, SQL , Design Patterns ? Is this the minimum requirement ?

  2. Will a 6 plus years experienced Software Engineer needs to know about Data Structures ? If he doesn't, is this Good time to learn after 6 years ?

It is hard to tell what the minimum requirement is these days. Do you need to know all the data structures?
No. Do you need to understand some? It does not hurt. It is the same as the rest. The more you know the better of course. In the end, it is just a title and there is no test to say you are a full-stack web dev now. If you get the full-stack web dev job you are one 🀣
I would only say that in general as a dev you need to learn new things all the time even if you worked in the field for 20 years.

It is always a good time to learn about data structures.
It will make your life easier.
It is important to try them out in the real world.
A lot of people are book smart but when it comes to real projects they don't know what to do.
