Some of the 16" square tiles have hollow sound when tapped. Apparently the
thinset was improperly set. Builder says easily fixed, will drill holes in
grout and force agent into hollow to repair.
I am a little skeptical, is this a reasonable solution or just expedient?
Seems like the thinset might be good on the periphery of the tile and
inhibit the new agent flowing into the hollow.

Bad idea. If it's a new house I'd suggest that your builder get someone
who knows how to set tile correctly and do the job over. Even if the
tiles are replaced the odds are that the grout won't match. It will
always look like a "fixed" job.
