Plywood Expansion Gap for Kitchen Island

Hello,

I am redesigning my kitchen island to be larger. I will be demo'ing the current drywall walls and putting in a new frame followed by plywood walls that I will then add shiplap to. I have ready about 1/8 spacing for plywood walls but this rule primarily seems to pertain to the actual walls of the home. Would an 1/8 " spacing be recommended even for a kitchen island to take into account expansion? Would MDF be a better choice for material?

followed by plywood walls
Why plywood or drywall just install the shiplap to the framing!

Do you think that will make the area sound too hollow? My hope was that the plywood would deaden any kicks to the island.
