What caulk under exterior door

I'm building a shed to match the house, siding, windows, etc. It is on a concrete slab and I'm ready to install the front door and double side doors.

I know I'm supposed to place a lot of caulk under the door before I lean it back into place. I've heard some say to use silicon, others say caulk, and still others say construction adhesive.

What is the proper thing to put under the door sill when it will be placed directly on concrete!
