No, that is the IAT (Intake Air Temperature) Sensor, your Jeep doesn't have a MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor it uses a MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) Sensor to perform a similar function.

George, does the MAP have hot wires like a MAF?

No, it is a piezoelectric device.

From MAP Sensor > How they work - Denso:
"The MAP sensor is a compact semiconductor vacuum sensor that utilizes characteristics (piezoelectric resistance effect) whereby electrical resistance changes when pressure is applied to silicon (single crystal)..."

The MAP sensor is in the intake manifold at some point after the throttle body.
If you spray it down the tube it will definitely pass by the MAP sensor, if you spray it in a vacuum line it may or may not pass the MAP sensor depending on where the vacuum line enters the manifold. I don't think Seaform will harm the MAP sensor in either case.
