setting mosaic tile floor with grout instead of thinset

I chose 1" white porcelain hex tile in mosaic sheets for a bathroom floor. It is about 1/8" in thickness. My tile guy says with tile that thin he can't use thinset bc it will come up between tiles and instead he will set it with JUST grout.

I have been reading about tile and setting for months and have never run across this as install method.

Is this acceptable? Please help!!
