Now, I would want if it makes sense to use
tune2fs with flags

Generally speaking... yes, it does make sense. Though you might want to run
tune2fs -l /dev/sdXY | egrep "Maxim|Check"
to see how those flags are set as it all depends on the version of
e2fsprogs used to create the filesystems and/or distribution specific patches applied to
e2fsprogs. You might already have
CHECKINTERVAL set to
0 respectively, due to the fact that, as of v. 1.42,
e2fsprogs defaults to
-c1 -i0, see changelog:
If the enable_periodic_fsck option is false in /etc/mke2fs.conf (which is the default), mke2fs will now set the s_max_mnt_count superblock field to -1, instead of 0. Kernels older then 3.0 will print a spurious message on each mount then they see a s_max_mnt_count set to 0, which will annoy users.
