If I charge $6/sq ft for a wall, ex: framing, drywall, tape mud, basically ready for paint - that doesn't include materials, right?
What I would recommend you to do is contact a few contractors as a customer and check what their charges are and what services it includes. It will give you an idea as to how to price with or without material.

Every contractor is different. Each will set there own prices, some will include materials and labour. Others, just labour. The estimate should clarify this. If it does not include this information you are most likely not dealing with a professional. My advice to you is get a second opinion. Make sure the contractor understands what you except to see in the estimate. Labour and material costs, extras and even what's included or excluded.
I hope this information helps.
I gather from your question that you have probably gone out on your own as a contractor and are looking on how to price jobs so you are competative. It takes along time to be able to walk onto a job site and give a customer a price. You need to ask yourself how much do you need to make a day and how long it will take you plus material. Material is simple how much a linear foot is the material. I dont know of the top of my head but studs, insulation, drywall, mud and paint use to run about $14.00-17.00 per foot.
