I agree--rod tip in the water when stripping
you can certainly put your rod tip into the water more quietly than your fly lands, and it's also much farther from the fish than where your fly lands.

You can make noise with your strips if your rod tip is not in the water--line slapping sometimes if you have an agressive strip.

I'm sure 9 guides out of 10 will tell you to keep the tip in the water.
