That will cause you to fail an emissions inspection. Anything which triggers the CEL will, because everything which triggers it will adversely impact the emissions system on that vehicle.

Will the knock sensor cause A car to fail a smog test?

Yes. Any faulty emissions control sensor, including knock sensors, will result in an automatic fail of any emissions control test, period. It doesn't even matter if your vehicle's actual exhaust emissions are within acceptable limits. In most cases, once it is determined that a sensor is bad, the test is ended immediately, and considered failed.

2006 Mazda6 S has a bad knock sensor and shifts to 3rd from park then won't shift when driving even in manual override so what could cause the problem?

Well, you answered it yourself. Your Knock Sensor has gone bad. I bet your check engine light comes on too. When your check engine light comes on and your transmission is all screwy that means your car is in fail safe mode. Not allowing you to shift into higher gears. Get the knock sensor replaced and re calibrated and your fine.
