Rescued Sheltie mix mouthing my hand

Our little Sheltie/pomeranian mix that we rescued mid Feb mouths my hand. He never bites or nips or acts at all aggressive about it. I never had a dog do that before.

He's 4 years old according to the vet. My husband thinks it's his way of telling me he loves me.

My sister in law says it's a form of domination and not to let him do it,

Anyone have more info on this? Oh and there's no rhyme or reason as to when he does it.
