I’d probably glue all of the boards on both ends, so in the rails and the spline. But I would make sure that none of the boards were glued to each other, by leaving an inch or so on both sides of the joint that are not glued (I’d probably put a bit of wax where I didn’t want the glue). Then the wood could move a little seasonally, and the expansion would only be over each individual board rather than over the whole piece.
