Stroke adding size to an object

I know this happens in indesign where i would create a 3″x3″ object and when i add a stroke it becomes 3.0139×3.0139. I know the shape is still the same, but is there a way i can disable this and have it still read 3×3?

Answer

In Transform or control panel in context menu there’s an option Dimensions Include Stroke Weight. Turn it off to get object dimensions without stroke width.
