joints in subfloor

We going to lay porcelain tile using hardibacker over two layers of existing
layers of 5/8 plywood.The plywood is butted tight at the joints.My husband
wants to trim out the edges of the plywood joints with a circular saw and
fill them with caulk-is this a good idea or even necessary?Should the joints
instead be filled with thinset when putting down the cement board?Thanks
in advance.

Always a good idea to have an expansion joint between the sheets of plywood and yes, caulk would be better than thinset there.
