It has always been a practice that all showers and bath tubs have caulk (or silicone) around all the joints, water fixtures, etc. so that water does not find it's way behind the wall.

The same practice applies to steam showers.  Just as your installer will silicone (caulk) around the shower door, hot & cold fixture, etc. They should silicone around the steam shower control so that water does not sneak behind it.  Not only will water behind your control ruin your wall eventually, it can also ruin your control from moisture damage.
