The blue section on this Groen 088260 BASO 1/2" 24V Natural Gas Control Valve serves a specific purpose and powers the 24V electrical ignition. If your current part does not have this piece then it's safe to say your piece of equipment has a standing pilot.
The replacement gas safety valve you'll want for your model is Groen part #097001. I've included this part below for your convenience.
