Hinge projection on door?

August 23, 2019

My carpenter is telling me that 1/4" projection on a normal mitered hinge is standard. But the hinge in this photo looks like it sticks too far off the door to my eye? Does anyone know if there is a best practice for how far out from the face of a door a hinge should project? See image below.

I'd like the hinge edge to be just about flush with the face of the door and jamb, not extending over the edge like this.

Would that cause any trouble with the door's operation?

Thanks in advance everyone!
