Players eligible to become free agents after a given season do not become free agent immediately upon conclusion of the season. There is a period (not sure how long) during which the player's team has exclusive negotiation rights and that period begins today.  (Unless the rules have changed.)

You're correct:  As of 9 a.m. on November 2, 2017 (11/2/17) or the day after the 2017 World Series concludes, all eligible players will become free agents. From there, a five-day period of qualifying offers begins. When that period concludes, all non-contracted players are free to sign.
