Question Porcelain tiles in condo vs. soundproofing

I've been told that I need to put a Duraquiet membrane(about 2mm of rubber type material) under my 16X16 porcelain tiles for soundproofing the floor in my condo(condo administration regulation). Reading many posts here saying you can't put ceramics on vinyle flooring due to the cushioning effect of the vinyle(result in grout cracking) and non bonding of tiles on the vinyle, can someone explain to me why the Duraquiet membrane should be ok? Wouldn't keeping the 2mm of vinyle, already in place be as effective in soundproofing the floor than this Duraquiet membrane considering I have the same risk with either? Considering I'm using big 16X16 porcelain tiles, doesn't this reduce the risk of moving tiles or grout cracking due to the membrane? Lastly I was told to use multipurpose wall glue for my Floor. Why?
Thanks for taking the time to answer.

Use this, it's for tiled floors and should meet all specs needed.
