In this sense, if you use FaceTime as your main application to make calls to other people, or to participate in group meetings, you may want your phone number not to appear on calls. After all, preserving privacy is essential, especially to avoid unwanted calls or messages.
The best alternative, then, is to use your email associated with your Apple ID in in-app calls. That is, you can continue to use FaceTime, but sensitive information (personal phone number) will remain hidden.
