Q: Regarding h1 b 60 day frace period

My current H1B validity period: 03/2021-03/2024, but my last day for the job is 08/15/2021

I got a new job. The new employer wants to file an H1B transfer petition before 10/15/2021 (within the 60 day grace period) but the start date mentioned in the offer letter is 11/01/2021.

If the start date is more than 60 days from the last day of the job and but a petition is filed before the 60 day grace period.

Does that mean I cross the 60 day grace period & need to leave the country or should I still be qualified for 60 days grace period, since H1B transfer filing is done within 60 days grace period? Thank you.
