Hey Dave,

No, you do have to push it down into the mortar, just put more mortar beneath them so that when you do push them down into it there is enough mortar to keep them level with the other tile. You will just have more mortar beneath the v-caps. You don't want them to float on top, you want plenty of mortar especially under the v-caps as they will be leaned on and bumped around more than the countertop. You want to make sure they are nice and solid.
