My architect job interviews seldom ask me to describe design patterns. They don't seem interested in textbook knowledge. (I feel many people can describe a lot of patterns, but it tells me nothing about their competency at using them.)
Some asked me to describe my personal contribution to my projects, my design challenges — candidate is free to mention design patterns.
The more difficult technical questions are software problem solving + low-level component design, which requires more skills than a junior developer.
