What are these controls that show up near text objects (bottom right side) - even when not editing text.  Is there a way to hide them?

This is an indicator of text overflow,  you can extend the text frame to show the hidden text

If you click on the + you will switch to the type tool. The text frame you create will contain the overflow text.
