tiling - door casing/frame

I've seen tile layed two ways in relation to door casing/frame. The first is butt tile close to these with a scribe/small gap in between tile and door material - grout or caulk the crack. The second is cut the door casing/trim so tile slides under. In the past, I've always replaced trim after laying tile, so it wasn't an issue. We are building a home and the contractor is letting me do some tile work. This will be after trim carpenter is done. I am leaning toward cutting out the trim/frames as needed, so tile slides underneath. Suggestions or overall thoughts for the two methods?

Definitely rent a jamb saw and cut the jambs prior to tile installation. Makes such a difference.
