I get that control planes and service meshes both have something to do with these issues, but I'm confused about which one does what exactly.

The control plane is an API server that distributes configurations to lightweight proxies (Envoy, in this case), also known as the data plane.

If you think about it Kubernetes concepts, the control plane is the API server and the data plane are all of the "kubelet", or worker, nodes
