Yes, the "p" stands for "planar"

Not sure I understand but all raw formats I have ever seen
start with the pixel in the top left corner and contain one
(horizontal) line after the other starting with the first
component (y).

Different software may of course use different definitions
for particular pix_fmts, I assume you were asking about
the definitions used in FFmpeg. For yuv444p, differences
are unlikely, they do exist for other formats though.
