Their B-team does qualify though, but I hope they continue to use the Ferrari next season for the sake of variety

Yes.
MUGEN is already operating Team Kunimitsu (#100, works team) car.
So #16 car will be the works team as well.

For Honda factory team only MUGEN and Kunimitsu is the work team for 2017 season right?

It's difficult to define factory team/works team.
As for Nissan, Nissan is managing NISMO directly.
So NISMO is a factory team in name and in reality.
But in Honda, Team MUGEN and Team Kunimitsu are independent team/company. (MUGEN isn't a subsidiary company of Honda.)
Therefore they are the works teams which means that they get 1st treatment from Honda.

Then how about Lexus or Toyota GT500 one ?

Good question.
In Toyota, there are no official works teams at all.
However, Team Tom's can get a 1st treatment by substance.
This is based on the results in the past solely.

@Japanese Samurai (sorry i m not urging you , you share your thought for us)

In conclusion, all Lexus GT500 team are all privateer team or semi works team .

For Nissan , Kondo Racing is privateer team and the rest of Nissan team are semi work team except Nismo .

As Honda, Only, Team Mugen and Team Kunimitsu are works team or semi-work teams and other Honda team is privateer team right???

Speaking about ARTA , ARTA is the privateer team or semi work team for Honda team right???

Very very difficult problem!

In my opinion, there are no pure privateer teams in GT500 class.
It's because they get great financial support from 3 manufacturers more or less.

For example, all Nissan GT500 drivers have a contract with NISMO.
NISMO send them to all Nissan GT500 teams.

Team Bandoh (#19) calls itself privateer.
However, according to Juichi Wakisaka, they get financial support equal to other Lexus teams since 2014.

So I think all GT500 teams are at least semi-works team.

Team Bandoh (#19) spent 700,000,000 yen as GT500 participation budget by 2011-2013 (including chassis/operation cost) in privateer era, according to Autosport magazine.
