Do you silicone edges at backsplash?

We just had our kitchen remodeled and the backsplash was just put in. We have beige quartz countertops with a ivory/cream ceramic subway tile type backsplash. The installer put white silicone along the edge of the tile where it meets the countertop and in each corner. I hate it. I was told we needed this for water, but I don't remember ever noticing it in other kitchens. Is this a something that needs to be done? Can I take it out or do anything so it blends in more and it's not so noticeable? I'll attach a few pictures.
