Default Switch to Cont Grip for Forehands hit inside the service line?

Coaches tell that when I come up to the net, to switch to the continental grip on forehands that are hit well inside the service line.

When Federer hits this forehand from inside the service line, does he change from his Eastern to Continental grip?:

Shot is 1:05 into the video

Note:
Will from FYB has mentioned that Federer uses the same forehand grip on the thousands of clips he has examined, so I presume he keeps the Eastern grip even for short balls like this.
