So my understanding of it is that a node is where the wavefunction passes through zero - meaning it goes from positive to negative or vice versa - rather than just hitting zero and going back the way it came, as though reflected (not changing sign). So while a wavefunction can equal zero, it doesn't necessarily mean that that point is a node if it doesn't cross zero. Hope that helps!
