mark, it's not quite clear what the safety concern is here. What is the stove that you are concerned about and what are the clearances? Are you trying to reduce them with stove boards?
not trying to reduce clearances just want to make sure the pad will be safe for the floor it is 2 36x48 pads with 1/2 inch durock and 3/4 plywood under
If they are well supported by the underlayment I see no reason for concern about that part of it.
Most codes do require that stoveboard be anchored in some way, especially if they are very light and if the stove does not sit on them. Some companies used to have small sheet metal clips to join two boards.
In general, you can use common sense and construction rules of thumb.
