FedEx: WTF does "Package not due for delivery" mean???

So I ordered something online on Wednesday night, deciding on FedEx 2-day delivery as an option. The delivery estimate came up as Monday. Okay, I thought, maybe because of the whole Sunday thing, it would take a little longer to get here. It was picked up by FedEx Thursday night, got to the biggest local FedEx station Friday night, and got to the closest local facility this morning. So far, so good.

The tracking info says, on its arrival at the local facility, that "Package not due for delivery." What in bloody hell does this mean? That they COULD have delivered it to me today, but are deliberately holding it so it gets to me on their estimate, and not before? Because that's what that message seems to say to me. Have they dropped delivering on Saturdays (I admit I haven't used them in ages)?

I'm gonna be REALLY annoyed if they could've gotten it to me today, but withheld it two extra days on purpose.
