Hi Kurt, and welcome to the forum.:)

The change of plane that you refer to is not what would be considered a control joint. If you're wondering how you should treat it, the industry standard calls for caulk at all changes of plane. A lot of folks still grout that particular joint though - especially if they're confident in the structure's construction.
