They are normally attached with Thinset and stress crack membrane but I am hesitant to to leave it at that.

The installation method should be verified to comply with the heat output of your fireplace unit for safety reasons. Your fireplace kit should come with specific instructions for the type of materials and how they should be attached due to the amount of heat that unit is designed to produce.
