I guess so. But the frag warhead could works better for sinking unarmored small boats, or an individual target that isn't escorted with other sensor-rigged warships. Given by its use in 2020s, CEC will be a conmon trend so hard-killing enemy weapon mounts and sensors could hardly eliminate the threat entirely.
If it can pre-detonate the frag like AAM and SAM does, it will be a very good crowd-control weapon on the surface, and countering missile boats effectively. If better, the accompanying F-35 should provide precision vector to make SM-6 hit the specific part of the ship, to maximumize the mission-kill effect.
EDIT: Upon further test SM-6 against warships, there's a twisted result: Russian S-300V could handle SM-6 saturation strike, but British Type-45 and Chinese Type 055 are getting blasted. I found that SA-20's favored Target Altitude is 90000ft, higher than Aster-30's 65000ft and HQ-9B's 80000ft, so to make Russian ship launched the SAM earlier than other 2 ships.
It turns out the British destroyer has the best long-range sensor to find SM-6, but use the worst missiles to defend with!
I find this intercepting mechanism is very questionable, why must these SAMs have to met with target's height first? Why not able to pre-acquire SM-6's flight route so to maximize the intercept distance? Since intercepting ballistic missile warhead is easier because of the ABM's guess-route mechanism, why not working the same with other ASMs that using the ASBM flight pattern?
I've uploaded the updated scenario again:
