I though nox, noctis was a 3rd Decl. and therefore it should be 'nocte'

Indeed it is a 3d Decl. The term 'nocte' is also valid, but is usually replaced in its ablative by the irregular 'noctu'. It only happens in the case of this noun

Rattus quoque non dormit, sed rodit.

(Romans called all small rodents "mus", "rattus" is a Medieval borrowing)
