Why isn't this a false start?

NCAA football question: In college football, the offense will often get to the line of scrimmage, and then everyone will turn and look at the sidelines for the play. Why isn't this considered a false start? Are the players not considered "set" even though they're standing still at the line of scrimmage? It just always looks odd to me when I see the entire offense, including the linemen, suddenly turn to the coaches (or to the signs and placards) for instructions. Looks like a false start.
