IIRC that interview was a day or two later—he said it took a while to get the paperwork in place.
When asked when they'd start buying, he said they had already.

Your memory is better than mine:

The big question when Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway announced a nearly unprecedented stock buyback on Monday: Would the company actually follow through with it?

Today [Friday, Sept 30] on CNBC, Buffett said Berkshire already has started buying back stock.

Anyways, this time, the paperwork didn't take as long: the buyback was SIMULTANEOUS with the authorization!
