It wasn't a tank or a stug, so I guess it might be referred to as artillery

Response to Soldiers' colloquial terms for rare AFV?

If it carried a pak I think it would be different, but the 105 probably was meant to be used as close support artillery. It definitely had an edge over towed 105s which meant it was able to keep close to the infantry, shoot some rounds, then change position so it wouldn't be so easy to locate. So maybe those who had the things around just referred to it as either the 105 or artillery without having to be specific.
