No, that's the definition of a bluff.
I do see what you're saying. He was trying to take advantage of the letter of a rule and not the spirit to gain an unfair advantage. But as far as angles go, this is about as tame as it gets.
Keep in mind that all he asked was, "Is that a call?" which is a perfectly legitimate question to ask.
