Note: I used the alpha version when testing but I bet it's going to be the same with the stable version.

I used the alpha, too, on a Debian testing system but I got the warning. Did you make sure to remove your old Tor Browser profile as well before installing the new Tor Browser version? If so, then maybe 17.10 is doing something differently.

Re-installed the TB and the issue was no longer present, not sure however what may have led it to no longer display before...

Actually, at least for me, this seems to happen after a couple days of usage of a new fresh clean Tor Browser install. Is that expected or not?

Yes. It shows you the warning only three times assuming you understand by then what you are doing.
