No, the standard thickness for interior doors is 1-3/8”, so unless there’s something unique about the door frame you’re installing it in, that’s a given.

What I was referring to is the hinge mounting. Obviously, you want the door to sit flush in the door frame, not inset, and not standing proud of it. It’s something that would be obvious to you when you mounted it, but since I had mentioned that bit about the edge being 1/4” back from the face of the door, I figured I’d clarify that that’s what you’ll wind up with, but it’s not what you should use to place the hinge.

I know you’ll figure it all out on your own, so maybe I’m just clouding the issue by over-explaining. This stuff is really difficult to explain in text. Here’s a photo that may help.
