The biscuits are useful for alignment. The only downside might be they should be more or less centered across the thickness. If not they swell a little, then some folks sand down the swelling (on the surface) then the biscuits shrink and you wind up with football shaped divots in your top. The problem I’ve had using a mallet to fine tune the alignment is you need a flat surface to lay the workpiece on to line things up. For me that piece is usually sitting on a couple of clamps, which doesn’t always work out that well.
