Actually, some of your more modified thinsets will boast crack suppression properties, but these are for your most minor ones. Real thinset (not premixed "thinset") will not be adversely effected by water after curing, however, this does not make it water-proof.

You could acheive better crack prevention and waterproofing by rolling on some RedGard over the surface to be tiled first (assuming this is a floor).
