One doesn't need to be a construction engineer or architect or handyman to figure this stuff out. One only needs to have once been a housewife at some point in the last 4 decades.
Caulk would be useless in this situation. Caulk seals cracks, gaps, etc. No good between moving parts.

Spoken like someone who hasn't been a housewife even once within the past 40 years.

Silicone caulk is the perfect weatherproof buffer when a door is clanging against the door frame. You don't put it on the joints/hinges. Those aren't what is making noise. What's making noise is the edge of the door (where the doorknob/handle is) clanging against the frame. So you create a rubbery buffer by adding a thin line of caulk from top to bottom of the door near the outer edge.

Then, when the door automatically slams shut, it will make a "FOOF" sound instead of a "KERBLAM" sound.

Two Bills is right. Caulking would not work in this situation.

Must confess I have never been a house wife, but I know how to do housework and can boil water, also, I know where caulk goes, and it is not between moving surfaces.

The owner of the building (my somewhat educated guess - Sumter County) and tell the most important Official you can talk with the ridiculousness and for them to fix the annoying problem. I’m sure they will be “on it”.

We may be getting some action. I got an email from Joseph Duennes and a service ticket No. 223107, and a number for the help desk, 352-568-6699.
Also, the doors were set in the open position at the library, and not operating this morning. Much quieter with the doors open.

Was at that library today. Doors were locked in the open position. "Problem" solved.
