Default Suggested rabbet cut depth

I am using an Incra LS Positioning system and I have wood that is 3/8 inch thick. The suggested rabbet depth is 7/32. This seems too deep. Is there a rule of thumb to follow for the depth, given the thickness of the stock?

It can vary, based on various design factors, but no more than 1/3 the thickness is a reasonable rule of thumb.
