2304.11.2.2 Wood supported by exterior foundation
walls. Wood framing members, including wood sheathing,
that rest on exterior foundation walls and are less
than 8 inches (203 mm) from exposed earth shall be of
naturally durable or preservative-treated wood.
This doesn't mean the top of slab or foundation wall has to be 8". With a 2" treated plate and sheathing that is treated, the top of slab or footing stem can still be 6" above ground line. Of course most sole plates are 1.1/2" and we don't normally use treated plywood sheathing.
