The question is this: In understanding networking protocols when data is segmented and prepared for transmission. Is the required TCP/IP header information bit/byte value count as part of the frame size. Or is the bit/byte value of the transmission protocol/internet protocol meta-data separate?

TCP http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transmission_Control_Protocol info is encapsulated inside the packet for the media control.   On Ethernet (which is the standard 8-pin network cables), the TCP/IP info is the 'payload'.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethernet_frame
