What do you think? (Replace Rotted Flooring or Not?)

hello again all, i finnaly got the floor down to the planking, sistered the joists. when i was repairing the planking that had rotted there was one small section...4"wide and 9"long that the builders never put in place due to the sink drain pipe. my question is if im putting 3/4 tng plywood down with 1/2" 2nd layer ply then 1/2" wonderboard for ceramic tile should i repace that section? i kinda understand why it was never placed in the first place, but will such a small area create a weak spot? its under where the cabinits will be and will have no traffic on it. thanks. ps sorry for the dumb question.

An area that small, especially under the cabinets, and since you will be capping it with additional material, should give not problems.
